As buildings become more insulated and airtight than ever before, the risk of problems arising actually grows so better guidance and evaluation, and more care in design and construction, become vital. If longevity and health aren't a key focus of the new build or retrofit works something is wrong.
Building Life Consultancy's mission is to be a key provider of that guidance and evaluation to the construction industry. Our range of discrete services is designed to plug into architectural practices, building companies and manufacturers of construction systems, as well as serving private clients, local authorities and associations directly.
