Built environment

Norton Straw works with architects, urban planners as well as energy companies and technology developers to solve a wide range of challenges facing the built environment.

Urban environments are growing in size and population. It is imperative that urban planning aims for  sustainability relating to energy generation, environmental impact, waste management and quality of life for its inhabitants.

Our experience in the built environment includes

  • Wind engineering such as pedestrian comfort assessment and wind loading for planning
  • Ventilation system design and analysis
  • Solar loading predictions
  • Novel waste management technology and system development
  • District energy and heating system design and analysis
  • Environmental and safety-related analysis such as gas dispersion
