With one of the largest in-house design teams in the UK we specialise in creating viable, robust and creative energy generation, distribution and conservation solutions of all sizes for small to large scale projects across all sectors.
We apply a whole life cycle approach to design in which we consider all aspects of the project from day one which ensures a smooth transition between the design, build and operation and maintenance phases. Our value-added philosophy enables us to create innovative solutions for small to large scale projects and variant options which have saved our clients significant capital investment and operational costs.
Design plays a critical role in achieving your energy objectives and continues to play a strong part into the operation, maintenance and optimisation phases to deliver carbon and financial efficiencies.
In partnership with Southwark Council we're retrofitting water source heat pumps into existing heat networks.Southwark Heat Pumps (In Progress)
Our design department deliver viable and creative solutions which help our clients maximise carbon and financial savings
Our database contains over 350million data points collected from 35,000 meters allowing our designers to more accurately model energy usage in a range of buildings. Delivering accurate plant and equipment sizing as well as maximise efficiency through great visibility of users consumption profiles.
We are BIM Level 2 compliant & have successfully delivered public sector projects to this standard, ensuring information is created, managed & shared correctly.
We can develop 3D models as early as tender stage, visualising your energy scheme from energy generation technology through to the district heating route connecting to the end users.
We have developed our own proprietary heat network modelling software which performs a complex range of calculations and delivers an optimally sized heat network.
In addition to mechanical and electrical design our team also contains architects and architectural technologists who have experience of designing energy centres.
We are committed to ensuring the skills of our workforce are at the cutting edge of the industry and investment in Continuous Professional Development for our staff.
Fantastic design from Vital – really impressive. They have added value all the way through the scheme. What was designed, wasn’t fit for purpose so Vital worked with the design to ensure the solution was right for us and the scheme. Vital have also assisted us with the modelling and we wouldn’t be where we are without Vitals help.
