At Lucid, we believe that “sustainability is not the only thing, it’s part of everything”.
In other words, the best way to achieve a truly sustainable outcome is to engage the entire project team in the design and delivery process.
Our engineering focus is to participate in the integration of building designs and energy performance.
WHAT IS BUILDING OPTIMISATION?
All buildings are unique. By optimising the variables above, the project team can achieve the best possible “whole of project” outcomes.
Lucid Consulting Engineers abide by our own Environmental Policy in all of our activities.
Lucid is a member organisation of the Green Building Council of Australia.
By encouraging an environment where client, architect and engineer all have a seat at the table for building envelope design, we can achieve robust and cost effective sustainable project outcomes.
From a building owner/occupier’s perspective, this is meaningful in terms of:
- Solutions that work – comfort, performance, reliability, longevity and maintainability are not compromised in an attempt to achieve an energy target.
- Practical, cost effective design solutions – designs that local contractors understand and are comfortable to deliver and will, accordingly, price competitively.
- Energy and water efficient buildings with low recurrent costs.
- Tangible, recognised and marketable building ratings – a building that can achieve high benchmark ratings in schemes such as NABERS, NatHERS and Green Star which will exceed the project’s commercial targets. Lucid Consulting Engineers have a number of accredited assessors under these schemes and would be pleased to take a lead role should any ratings be pursued.
