We are experienced in carrying out low and zero carbon technology feasibility studies for clients in new and existing buildings and masterplans. In addition, we have several engineers experienced in dynamic simulation modelling. This is a vital tool which allows RSP to construct a thermal model of a project and experiment with appropriate servicing strategies for it. We have carried out studies for several major clients using this software measuring the impact of improvement strategies on existing buildings, allowing our clients to make informed decisions on the optimal improvement strategy for energy and greenhouse gas emission reduction.  We are members of BSRIA (Building Services Research and Information Association); the Business Environmental Partnership and the Green Business Network.


RSP are leaders in energy efficient design of building services. With over 20 years’ experience in designing low energy, commercially viable solutions; it is our professional responsibility to encourage our clients to take energy reduction and efficiency seriously and we are committed to improving the sustainability of our work.

Our approach has always been to minimise energy use and therefore the requirement for services in buildings. We do this through good design practice and early interaction with architects and other design team members. We have developed, and strive to maintain, a broad knowledge of the latest developments in low energy design and equipment. This enables us and our clients to construct appropriate solutions to the challenges facing our environment.

RSP can provide a fully co-ordinated design service for utility infrastructure projects ranging from small scale to multi-million-pound developments.

Our experienced team aim to deliver a tailored but flexible approach to ensure the optimal strategy is achieved for the development.

RSP Consulting Engineers LLP are now WIRS (Water Industry Regulation Scheme) Accredited Designers.
