A dedicated team of specialists working on London Plan projects
The London Plan is at the disposal of all boroughs in the capital and covers topics as wide ranging as dealing with building waste to introducing a city-wide heat network.
Energist’s technical team offer the sustainability services you need to help you comply with these city-specific planning conditions, while also helping you with the more conventional requirements of Building Control.
Energist’s review of our upcoming site gave us cost certainty on energy and sustainability issues, helping us to reduce risk and plan for any potential changes in planning policy. It gave us confidence to commit to the scheme, having highlighted any potential unknowns.
