Sustainability Solutions For


At Lawler Sustainability, we have an excellent track record in the education sector and intimate knowledge of how to optimise building performance and make our schools and colleges more sustainable.

Building Performance Optimisation

Working with our sister company, Lawler Consulting, who are masters of the Design Build Process, allows us to provide a better value-added product to clients, without the associated increased cost.

As Lawler Consulting is engaged to take schools from the pre-concept stage through to Design Build and Rapid Build schemes, our sustainability team completes crucial groundwork such as BER assessment and daylight and overheating analysis, and informs the long-term sustainability strategy of the project.

By overseeing important energy upgrades, we ensure that every educational facility we work on can achieve building performance optimisation.
