  1. Why Choose Us

    We exist solely for Britain’s architects, builders & contractors so that they can design & build their buildings of choice, without the burden of complicated regulations. We’re right by their side. Challenging the unnecessary.

    In an industry that can be a complex web of restrictive regulation and red tape, we know you’re having to juggle many more things to achieve your project goals. Our purpose is to cut this complexity, by listening and understanding your project, finding you solutions.

    It always seems the paperwork piles up and no doubt the jargon jumbles you which means it can all become too complicated….so we will just simply take it off your desk and onto ours, untangle it all, straighten is out, and show you a plan to achieve project success.

    Same day, same week, same month – simply put, we’ll meet your deadlines.  

  2. A message from Sarah and the Team

    I love buildings. My family has a long history of working in and improving the construction industry, so I believe making the world better starts from the ground up, with the spaces we use for homes, for work and for fun. But instead of drawing plans and laying bricks, I wanted to make sure these spaces can be enjoyed by future generations as much as they are now.

    I founded Energist to provide energy efficiency and sustainability services to help you make better, greener buildings. Sustainability is all about looking forward, so I’m always hungry for new ways of making your world better, whether it’s keeping us one step ahead of regulations, teaming up with local charities or expanding what we do and how we do it.

    Together, we can keep Britain’s buildings brilliant.

  4. Chocolate request!

    Hard work and commitment to building customers’ success must have its reward. We love chocolate so much - and so do our clients - that’s why we sourced our own mouth-watering Energist brand!

    Only the finest quality – it’s Energist Given our perfectionism with energy assessments, we couldn’t just come up with any old chocolate. Only the finest quality* was good enough – silky smooth dark, milk and white chocolate bars with decent percentages of cocoa solids from acclaimed ‘bean to bar’ chocolatiers. If you want to help improve our chocolate by testing a sample or two (purely in the name of science) fill out the form below. 

    *Strangely enough, quantity was also very important!

  5. Charity

    Charity is a core pillar of Energist. 

    That’s why our dedicated charity team works tirelessly organising fantastic fundraisers to mobilise their coworkers, clients and community. 

    We’ve abseiled down skyscrapers, slept rough for homelessness, trekked, cyclyed & rowed the equivalent length from Calais to Kemble (203.7 miles) and now we can add jumping out of the plane to our ever expanding list. We do like organising events that really make a difference to our chosen Charity. 

    This year we have raised over £5,000 for Dorothy House Hospice Care.
