Design & Build
A design for life
McDowalls are leading designers of sustainable and exceptional environments, having an in-house design department that works with market-leading design software to accurately survey and co-ordinate services with other trades.
From initial enquiry to project delivery, we engage our clients in all aspects of the design and interpret their specific requirements for each individual project. This partnership is important to us and ensures that our engineers are focused on customer-driven, value-based, long-term reliable solutions that provide tangible benefits.
These benefits include cost certainty, design optimisation, a reduction in lifetime costs, better environmental performance and an improved sense of wellbeing that occupants can enjoy.
We are fully versed in the specific requirements of ever-changing building regulations, BREEAM-based projects and the increasing use of British Council of Offices model specification for commercial office refurbishments. We also work with specialists to produce SBEM and Thermal Modelling of buildings and provide detailed information to aid the production of an Energy Performance Rating certificate.
