Supporting sustainable design, construction and retrofit since 1982

Rickaby Thompson Associates specialise in energy efficiency and sustainability in buildings. We have over thirty years’ experience as leading consultants in this field. If we are to meet the challenge of climate change we must achieve a step-change in the energy efficiency and sustainability of all buildings – this is the focus of our work.

Our projects are located throughout the UK and across the EU.

They range in scope from new low carbon buildings to low carbon retrofit of existing buildings; from energy surveys and audits through detailed environmental assessments to post-construction monitoring and evaluation; from housing stock assessments and energy strategies to policy support, technical training and the preparation of guidance publications.

Our aim is to combine sound technical expertise with the highest standard of professional service.

Our approach to every project is to understand and embrace our clients’ objectives and help to fulfil them, whilst promoting and improving the sustainability of their buildings using technically robust, cost effective techniques.
