Your one-stop energy and sustainability consultant
I’m your one-stop energy and sustainability consultant. I’ll help you get it right and navigate the complexities. You’ll meet planning and building control requirements, reduce your risks, cut your costs and tick all the boxes.
You’ll be able to focus on what you do best because you’ll know compliance, testing and certification are all taken care of.
But ticking boxes is just the start. Whether you’re an architect, developer, contractor or homeowner, I can help you:
- integrate energy efficiency into the initial design, saving you time and money later on.
- push the limits of what’s possible and reap the rewards of a building that costs next-to-nothing to run.
- turn a potential minefield into a simple, streamlined and enjoyable process.
- contribute to the increasingly urgent movement to combat climate change.
From my base in Southampton, I work across the south of England, London and the home counties – and I also have clients in the further corners of the UK.
The Story of Build Pass
I’m Andrew. I’m something of a geek when it comes to sustainability and energy performance. Ever since I started out, I’ve been hooked on the intricacies of energy performance and the vagaries of our government’s policies. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s most certainly mine. And on this warming planet of ours, it’s becoming more and more important.
Something had always bothered me, though. Clients didn’t seem to realise how much more straightforward things could be. I’d read too many reports that were poorly written (at best) and incorrect (at worst), and I knew there must be a better way of doing things.
So I allowed myself to imagine another kind of energy consultancy – one that listened, gave straightforward, impartial advice, and cared about its clients. It had to be human-scaled and human-focused while having a deep, up-to-date understanding of the regulations, the industry and the technologies that routinely shake things up.
I spent a little more time dreaming, but then it was time to make that vision happen. And that’s what Build Pass is – a small, human, slightly geeky consultancy which is all about simplifying the complexity for my clients.
I do every kind of testing, evaluating, measuring, reporting, tweaking and advising that makes up this particular corner of the building industry. And you’ll know exactly who to come to when you have a question – me. If I don’t have the answer at my fingertips, I’ll find out. And I’ll be there for you throughout your project, pulling out all the stops.
My days are now filled with appreciative clients and enough spreadsheets to keep me very, very busy. It’s a frenetic business, and I never quite know what’s around the next corner. But if that happens to be you, then get in touch. I’m always ready to talk.
