Testimonials

‘I have had the pleasure to engage SRE on several of our refurbishment and new build projects. The experience has been a pleasure - and an exemption in the industry. SRE is now London and Regional’s “go to” consultant, specifically for sustainability & energy advice on L+R projects and specialist advise on the following: wellness, BREEAM, energy modelling and statements and daylight and overheating. SRE’s professional, friendly approach, along with extensive in-house knowledge consistently exceeds our requirements.’
Henrik Foster, Construction Director, London and Regional

‘We have worked with SRE on over 100 projects over the last ten years and it has been an absolute pleasure. From design stage to post completion their proactive approach is always extremely helpful.

‘Ayre Chamberlain Gaunt have worked closely with SRE on a number of projects during the last five years.  These projects have been of various scales and uses; including small scale projects with a value of £100,000 such as 50 sqm classroom pods and large-scale projects with the biggest project being a £25 million, 150 unit residential and mixed-use scheme in North London. SRE have always been an active member of the design team and the professional relationship established with SRE has been very good.  SRE are always on hand to answer queries relating to projects and provide critical information required in a timely manner.  I would happily recommend SRE to any professional looking to commission an energy and sustainability consultant.’

‘The project was to build 7 luxury flats above a 19th Century locally listed Public House, in West Hampstead- The Alliance Pub.  We had extreme BREEAM requirements as part of the S106 and indeed this was my first development with any BREEAM requirements. We had an existing BREEAM consultant on board and I along with the whole team found his approach costly, challenging and confusing. It seemed we had quite a mountain to climb. I took the unusual decision to change BREEAM consultant’s midway through the project and appointed SRE. This was a great decision; the difference was incredible and suddenly the mountain became a mole hill. SRE were so responsive and hands on. They took control and led us through the whole process and troubleshooting in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner. I cannot recommend SRE enough, they were literally the most professional consultants that I dealt with.’
Mark Reynolds, Director, Residall Property Ltd

‘We enjoy working with SRE, whether using traditional or off-site construction methods, where precision is paramount.  Their assistance in solving some of the technical challenges in reducing energy consumption and meeting current sustainability standards has been exemplary over the ten years we have worked with them.’
Ian Felgate, Director, Brookes Architects Ltd

‘The Macmillan building was complex to model and a challenge to achieve SBEM compliance on without any “green bling”.  The SRE team worked closely with us and the architects through multiple iterations and fine-tuning alterations to achieve compliance.  It was nearly the same as having the experts in our own office.  Their expertise with the software coupled with our experience of what is realistically viable for the building fabric and M&E systems complimented each other well.  They were a pleasure to work with and we have already engaged them for other schemes.’
Paul Cantwell, Director, Worldwise UK Ltd
