Design, Assesment and Climate study

A multidisciplinary approach to design that responds to building context, site conditions, neighbourhood influence, local climate and current habitat conditions help better the building experience. We engage across the table with all stake holders to create a cohesive product which is appreciable, memorable for building users and make it attractive to inhabit. To meet our aspirations we apply combination of strategies which are influenced by micro climate, building form, carbon impact and likely operational scenarios. With appreciation to local architecture we can deliver solutions for sustainability and engineering with promise for a flexible and seamless delivery.

Anthropogenic, or human-derived greenhouse gases (GHGs) are contributing to warming of the planet and creating the potential for greater damage from severe weather events. Developing effective abatement and mitigation methods requires assessment of the economic costs and potential benefits of design alternatives while considering dynamic influences such as innovations in technology and uncertainty in expected impacts.Transven provides independent, interdisciplinary research to evaluate the economic implications of climate change policy alternatives. Transven economic modelling and research capabilities deliver robust, objective analyses, and our work supports policy development and implementation efforts at every decision-making level.

  • Low Carbon Development (ZNE)

    These solutions focus to develop appropriate designs and mechanisms that lower the impact from carbon emissions, associated with manufacturing, construction, operations and transport of a new development or a redevelopment project including retrofit.

  • Building design study

    Incorporationof passive and active conservation methods in designthat help constrain energy use andrespond with local climate should be integral of a design process. This process is supported by building and site design studies from early to detailed design development stages of a project.

  • Carbon footprint study

    The imprints of carbon emitted by a development are crucial to gauge andmeasure impact of design decisions. Carbon infusion studies along with reasonable strategies for minimization are imperative to be explored before committing to any type of development.

  • Environmental Impact study / assessment

    Any type of development with cause positive and negative impact on the local environment. Methods to identify and mitigate the negative impact and enhance the positive impact can be done with detailed environmental studies using local and regional information of the region.

  • Climate study

    Climate analyses combine study of solar, shadow, weather and irradiance conditions to develop climate responsive passive design ideas. This study identifies the benefits local climate can offer to maximize saving potential from daylight harvesting, natural ventilation and thermal mass.

  • Building form and open

    These analyses reflect the impact of building forms and architectural features on the overall master plan. The influence of building positioning, orientation and its form on open spaces, pedestrian plazas and community areas are evaluated with intent to explore usability and potential functionality of indoor and outdoor public spaces.

  • Post occupancy evaluation

    Post occupancy stage offers vital information for designers and builders in future projects by factual and analytical evaluation of a project’s energy use and occupancy comfort. These studies help identify, among the various other benefits of sustainable design, the direct environmental benefits achieved by pursuing green building design principles and also evaluate the performance of certification program as a tool for sustainable development.
