Ramboll analysis in the UK is showing that the industry is over-designing building systems and providing up to 50% more electrical capacity and 30% more heating and cooling capacity than is ever needed.
Andrew Henderson, Executive Director for Buildings in the UK commented: “I’m very happy to see Ramboll’s position remain strong in this important index. 2018 was quite a year for us. We secured some very exciting projects and welcomed a number of high-profile people to the business. We continued to invest in the professional development and wellbeing of our people, supported more of our engineers through their chartership than before and continued to strengthen a culture that promotes diversity and nurtures inclusivity.
All of these have given our team the freedom and means to accelerate the development of dynamic solutions that benefit our clients and society, such as our digital toolkit and zero carbon buildings. I would like to extend my thanks to our clients, our collaborators and of course everyone at Ramboll working tirelessly to deliver great service.”
Mathew Riley, Managing Director for Ramboll in the UK added: “In the UK, Ramboll has grown 8% from the same period last year, an excellent achievement given the current market conditions. We continue to invest in innovative approaches which look to transform how our industry works and the value we create for clients. Our buildings team have performed really well and continue to differentiate themselves through their creative thinking, technical strength and digital know-how and deserve recognition as one of the most able buildings teams around.”
