Excellence in Engineering

Design

Drawing upon expertise across all areas of the services field, we consider at an early stage the planning and energy context applicable to the scheme and identify the key issues which will bear upon the success of the scheme and the planning submission.

We carefully research our brief to ensure our engineering solutions are design to exactly fit the needs of our client.

We offer a full range of building design services:

  • Building Information Modelling (BIM) - As this tool becomes more prominent within the market place, Crofton engineers are able to provide clients with a detailed computer-generated insight into how their building will function. It allows engineers to adjust features of the building to determine how it will react in certain conditions, and provide clients with the best solution for their needs. Implementing BIM at the outset of a project allows engineers to manipulate spatial relationships, light analysis, geographic information, and quantities and properties of building components.

  • Electrical building services - Traditional electrical design services include lighting design, lighting controls, fire alarm systems, lightning protection and voltage optimisation

  • Electrical building services - Traditional electrical design services include lighting design, lighting controls, fire alarm systems, lightning protection and voltage optimisation

  • Energy Services - It can be difficult to keep ahead with updates to the Building Regulations and See separate Low Energy Design section for a specific breakdown of services provided

  • Mechanical building services - Working alongside their electrical colleagues, our mechanical engineers provide the right design solution for your project.

    Our team of engineers bring an industry wide technical expertise and wealth of experience. We quickly focus on the client needs and architectural intent, so as to identify the correct service philosophy.

    Bringing experience, innovation and the latest analysis and predictive techniques together with the application new technology to bear upon the services solutions, we excel in addressing the needs of your project.

  • Public health services

  • Renewable technology integration

  • Vertical transportation - Crofton has experience in lift design for new buildings, as well as designing installations for existing buildings and the resulting modifications required to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995

Testimonial

Crofton has worked on a number of refurbishment projects for the University of Kent over the last 5 years, including upgrade of electronics laboratory facilities, new entrance foyer for the Marlowe building and various works to restaurant and bar facilities throughout the university.

In carrying out these projects, they have demonstrated their understanding of the university and the need to produce cost effective technical solutions.

Crofton’s ability to work as a team with the university and other consultants leads to the smooth running of their projects, and are a valued member of the project team.
