Sustainable Solutions for the Built Environment
Daedalus Environmental Limited is a sustainable design consultancy based in the south-east of England.
We provide an extensive array of services to the built environment industry across the country, working with both the private and public sectors.
Operating at all stages of a project’s lifecycle, we take an innovative yet realistic approach to our work: one that ensures clients receive the best guidance leading to comprehensive, cost effective and appropriate solutions to the complex challenges facing the sector.
Services – New Build
We can produce an Energy Statement for your proposed development, setting out a tailored approach to energy for the site to ensure it will be compliant with local and national policy, while aligning to your commercial and business needs.
We have provided this services for several hundred developments of all sizes, and our team have an in-depth knowledge of local and national planning requirements ensuring our recommendations are appropriate and cost effective.
Renewable and Low Carbon Energy
Our expert team can work with you to design low carbon and renewable energy solutions for your proposed development.
Detailed assessment ensures that measures specified will meet planning targets, including challenging energy and carbon reduction requirements.
We can provide advice and support on other aspects of sustainable design and construction, producing Sustainable Construction Statements and supporting Environmental Impact Assessments for larger scale developments.
In particular, we are able to produce Climate Change, Waste Minimisation and Water Neutrality Statements to demonstrate that your proposed development complies with planning policy and other regulatory guidance.
We can supply Part L compliance calculations and EPC certification for new build developments using SAP and SBEM methodologies.
We can also carry out Dynamic Simulation Modelling for more complex structures and, as such, can assist your teams in designing new buildings, reducing overheating risk and establishing recognised levels of energy performance.
Daylight and Sunlight Analysis
We can complete daylight and sunlight assessments for internal and external spaces for your proposed development to help ensure high quality design and fully useable and habitable spaces.
These assessments can be used to support planning applications, to satisfy Development Control, and to support BREEAM assessments.
Climate Change Adaptation
Future proofing new developments against the anticipated impacts of a changed climate is increasingly important for the built environment.
We can provide adaptation design modelling and advice for your development proposals to support more robust buildings and habitable environments for the future.
Services – Retrofit
The C-Path Platform
Working with Via-Analytics, we have developed C-Path, an on-line platform designed to enable local authorities and housing associations to plan tailored retrofit programmes using property specific data.
Regularly updated, automated databases and intelligent algorithms generate insights about the cost, carbon and energy impacts of any domestic retrofit programme.
C-Path is currently available to all local authorities and housing associations in England.
We have considerable experience of working with local authorities in the development and design of energy focused retrofit projects across all tenures of property.
Using C-Path, we can design programmes at an individual household level, devising a package of solutions that closely align with local authority funding requirements and other KPIs.
We are able take to a lead role in the ongoing management, coordination and administration of retrofit and renewable energy schemes, working with suppliers, contractors, building owners and residents to ensure the most effective outcomes for all parties.
