Channel Design Consultants is a pan Channel Island Building Services Consultancy, which specialises in the design of low energy, environmental solutions within the built environment.  Projects range in size and complexity from domestic dwellings, commercial and industrial properties to large scale specialised data centres.

We offer a complete building services and environmental consultancy service from concept through to client handover and beyond.

We can offer energy surveys and audits which will assist in identifying areas of businesses which are energy intensive and advise on methods of reducing their energy requirements and hence their carbon footprint. These surveys are undertaken by our staff, all of whom have received appropriate training to assess the energy consumption and running of overall buildings and key elements within  them. These surveys also identify weaknesses in the building envelope, housekeeping regimes, plant operation and lighting usage.

We also offer thermal imaging surveys of building envelopes, central plant and distribution systems to ascertain potential heat loss issues, poor insulation or high light potential faults within electrical installations. The external envelope surveys also available can assist in identifying areas of heat loss due to poor insulation, thermal bridging and roof penetrations.

We can undertake Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) surveys, production of ‘Display Energy Certificates’ and ‘Energy Performance Certificates. We are registered by the BRE for undertaking BREEAM of buildings both within the UK and Internationally.
