Our environmental design group is home to building services, mechanical, electrical, public health and infrastructure engineers, specialist lighting designers, acoustic and sustainability consultants, environmental (e.g. BREEAM) assessors, digital engineers and building physicists.
Our engineering teams collaborate with other design professionals, drawing on our pool of specialists to deliver cutting edge, award winning projects. As a team, we are distinguished by our regular early strategic involvement in projects, our immediate access to any discipline and the close integration between our engineers and specialists and the innovation that results.
BDP’s culture is dedicated to the ethos of ‘creating places for people’. We are driven to create the very best, user-centred, inspirational and sustainable environments possible; places and spaces that are enjoyed and appreciated by the people who use them, maintain them and visit them. We deliver innovative, low carbon solutions which address the issues of today and the challenges of the future, with ESG underwriting everything we do.
