Stagg Architects have a firm belief in harnessing technology to create more sophisticated buildings which are better for people and the environment.
In all aspects of our design we strive for efficiency, especially when considering environmental performance both in terms of the design and construction process as well as the lifetime performance of the building.
We look at simple systems to reduce energy use, through passive design, computer modelling and robust detailing. This includes optimising insulation performance, reducing air leakage, and controlling solar gain. In tandem with this approach we consider the benefit of renewable energy sources, deciding on the most beneficial approach through a careful process of analysis and cost-testing.
We are experienced in achieving BREEAM Excellent ratings for various types of use and we are familiar with technologies including whole-house heat recovery and ground source heat pump technology.
