The chances to make smart, sustainable and cost-effective choices during the initial stages of a design concept are often overlooked. We recommend this is the right time to begin the discussion.
Helping you from the outset
Unfortunately, clients often wait until after planning permission before investing in consultancy fees – but this can lead to an increase in costs as options reduce over time. Ignoring energy efficiency goals during the design process can also result in major problems further down the line, including a potential resubmission or significant changes to the building’s design.
Focus 360 Energy offers friendly guidance through this early-stage design phase; offering professional analysis and keeping expenditure within budget while making sure all necessary regulations are met.

RIBA 0-3 – Planning Services Overview
During the initial stages of design concept, many overlook the opportunities to make intelligent, sustainable, and cost-effective choices. Focus 360 Energy believes that now is the perfect time to initiate a conversation about these crucial considerations. By taking a measured approach at this early stage, we take the guesswork out of low-energy building design.
Initial overheating analysis
The initial overheating analysis provides clarity and assurance that the building is designed with comfort in mind. This thermal evaluation also helps to identify any potential problems, allowing modifications to be made without sacrificing aesthetics. With this assessment, you can rest easy knowing your design is well-suited for year round stability.
Building fabric optimisation
Discovering the best way to utilise your building fabric can help you make smart investments in cost savings and thermal comfort. Our optimisation services offer a smart solution for those with limited insulation budgets or who want to identify the ideal design point. With our expertise, you can trust that your spending is going where it matters most!
Embodied Carbon Analysis
At the very start of your project, get expert advice on Embodied Carbon Analysis for concept designs. With our guidance, you can design beautiful, progressive buildings with lower carbon emissions – so you can move forward with confidence.
Renewable energy feasibility
We give you the insights and knowledge that you need to get the most out of renewable technology for your building. We are here to break down complex details like capital costs, running costs, and government subsidies – all tailored towards a holistic strategy so that your design team can confidently proceed with the project.
