Sustainability

KTA champions sustainability across all its work nationally and internationally and is widely considered to be one of the most forward thinking consultants in this field.

To help our clients move towards net zero carbon, we specialise in onsite power generation with exportation of excess energy generated. Installations include small and large scale wind turbines, photovoltaics, ground source heat pumps and solar thermal designs.

KTA was also the building services consultant on the world’s first BREEAM ‘outstanding’ large scale industrial building.

Wind Turbines

KTA has completed a range of turbine schemes, designing and managing the whole process from small scale turbines for on site generation, to 2MW turbines with direct export to district network operator.

Photovoltaics

We have been successful in achieving development planning requirements and installation of many small, medium and large photovoltaic schemes,  including integral roof installations.   The latest being the 750kWp scheme provided for Wayfair on their 1,000,000 sq ft distribution centre at Magna Park Lutterworth.

Biomass (wood pellet) Boiler

KTA was responsible for the design of a large scale biomass boiler plant for warehouse underfloor heating, for the world’s first BREEAM ‘outstanding’ industrial building.

Magnitude 314

Heralded as the world’s first net zero carbon for construction verified building. KTA were services consultants from concept through to completion including infrastructure services.

Technology

Built Environment Analytics, or BEA, is an online portal provided in association and through continual development with KTA.

The portal is provided completely free of charge with zero annual subscription costs and the end user owns the data.

It provides tenants and operators with all consumption and sub-metered metrics for gas, water and electric alongside occupancy metrics (i.e. area capacity used) with environmental monitoring (noise pollution, air quality etc).

The portal also automates reporting and provides evidential data required for many of today’s building and environmental standards.

The portal and its software are under continual improvement and development, tangible hardware applications are regularly added, such as people counting at building thresholds.

BEA is the only free portal in today’s market that offers unparalleled levels of linear and cross analytics – all provided from a single source supplier under a fully comprehensive warranty.
