Who We Are

We’re all about balance at Energist – we pride ourselves on being both knowledgeable and approachable.

We’re passionate about what we do too, because good buildings can make a real difference for both communities and the environment. All this allows us to strike the right balance in our work, ensuring developments are sustainable, compliant and cost-effective.

While we take our work seriously, though, ours is a fun, friendly workplace too. Regular get-togethers – invariably revolving around enjoying good food and good parties – ensure we’re a close-knit team. These have been especially valuable as we’ve continued flexible working. We trust our team; combining office- and home-based working to suit each individual’s circumstances means they’re relaxed and happy in their work – able to focus on getting the right results for our clients.
