Sustainable – solutions for the built environment

Rickaby Thompson Associates is pleased to announce the formation of an alliance with the multi-disciplinary building consultancy John Rowan and Partners in order to promote sustainability in the built environment.  The alliance, known as ‘Sustainable’ provides John Rowan and Partners’ clients with direct access to Rickaby Thompson Associates’ energy and sustainability expertise, based on our thirty-two years of experience.  Specialist energy and sustainability consultancy can now be offered alongside and integrated with John Rowan and Partners’ other services.  The alliance also allows Rickaby Thompson Associates to offer our clients the wide range of services offered by John Rowan and Partners, including: cost management; project management; surveying; health and safety advice; contract procurement; planning services; building information systems; and strategic asset management.  The two companies will remain independent of each other, and will continue to form joint project teams when appropriate; a senior member of John Rowan and Partners’ team will join Rickaby Thompson Associates as a non-executive Director, later this year.

Sustainable will offer the full range of Rickaby Thompson Associates’ services: low energy design and specification advice; regulatory compliance assessments and Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs); low carbon retrofit consultancy; housing stock energy consultancy; environmental assessments (BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes); building performance evaluation; the preparation of technical guidance on any aspect of energy efficiency and sustainability in buildings; and training.
