Energy Consultant
We are committed to delivering environmentally-friendly, low-energy solutions for the built environment. We encourage promoters of new projects to consider the highest possible construction standards, ideally to Passive House Standards.

Property Surveying
Survey & Design offer a comprehensive service in respect of carrying out Structural Surveys of Residential & Commercial buildings. These surveys may be carried out for the purposes of a proposed property purchase, or may be required to establish the breadth & depth of suspected defects such as settlement issues, dampness, condensation, fabric deterioration, etc.

Asset Management
Survey & Design offers a specialised service to the Financial, Legal & Building Sectors providing advice & assistance. We provide advice & assistance towards the resolution of distressed property loans and/or unfinished developments in the Residential sector.

Energy Performance Contracting
Survey & Design has conducted extensive research in this area and endorses the Government commitment in this area to deliver funding mechanisms such as Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) as an alternative to traditional funding mechanisms which are currently incapable of facilitating the scope of work required. Survey & Design, in conjunction with its sister company Dovetail Management Solutions will be an advocate & participant in the pioneering of the EPC market in Ireland.

We are committed to delivering environmentally-friendly, low-energy solutions for the built environment. We encourage promoters of new projects to consider the highest possible construction standards, ideally to Passive House Standards.

Such a decision will shortly no longer be an option but a requirement, given that the Government is committed to introducing Low Energy Buildings in the very near future, as a step towards a Low Carbon economy in the medium term. Furthermore, the Government is committed in the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan to achieving 20% energy use reduction by 2020.

It is estimated that achievement will require energy retrofitting of up to 1,000,000 buildings by 2020 – this would require a rate of retrofitting far in excess of the historical rate. This will undoubtedly be the primary focus of the residential construction sector over the next 8 years, rather than new-builds.

However, the previous practice of shallow energy retrofits will not be sufficient to deliver the required savings – greater breadth and depth of retrofitting will be required. This will necessitate a case-by-case feasibility study of the retrofitting potential of up to 1,000,000 homes by qualified experts. Survey & Design is ideally positioned to facilitate the required retrofitting revolution & intends to be at the forefront in the delivery of significant energy savings in the residential & commercial built environment.
