LINARCH design

Energy efficiency

We work with a network of engineering consultants to provide a comprehensive capability to optimise the energy efficiency of building types from residential to commercial.

We have provided advice for facade design trade-offs for advanced commercial buildings in Sydney, passive climate responsive design and system optimisation for institutional buildings in India, conflicts between acoustic performance and natural ventilation in residential apartment projects, remediation of overheating of individual residences. We consider the problem of energy efficiency and comfort holistically, often demonstrating the effectiveness of apparently non-conforming designs where they are a legitimate response to local conditions.  When applied to issues such as cross-ventilation compliance for residential developments, our expertise is almost always preferred by the Land and Environment Court.
