Architype PERFORM+ is an environmental consultancy service that helps clients to get the best operational results from their buildings.
We work at design stage and with existing buildings to ensure that long-term performance tackles current issues and enhances the future potential of built assets.
Our guidance seeks to go beyond quick-fix solutions, applying a holistic approach to solving specific and complex problems.
Our advice is not isolated; we use decades of experience in sustainable architecture to incorporate the client’s vision and ensure that the ripple effects of our interventions have positive outcomes.
When buildings don’t work as required it can jeopardise their future and impact on users. We find long-term solutions to tackle common and complex problems; from over-heating to mould, to secure the status of your building.
We reject the convention that completed buildings do not perform as predicted at design stage. We work to minimise energy in use and ensure that performance quality is upheld in the construction phase.
Optimising internal environments is a major consideration for the health and well-being of the occupants. We prioritise comfort and advise non-toxic materials to improve the user experience, promoting health and productivity.
33% of UK carbon emissions come from the built environment, but there is another way. Architype can help you to cut your embodied, operational and lifecycle carbon footprint, with a joined up approach that doesn't cost the earth.

“After years of unsuitable conditions in our stores, Special Collections faced the options of either investing in additional air conditioning or finding a way to make our existing building and facilities more efficient. Architype helped us to realise the preferable option of maximising the efficiency of our building – for the first time the building does what we want it to!”
