Outstanding building physics expertise.
Our mission at Building NRG is to target building energy and fabric performance, enabling our clients to create healthy, comfortable, energy efficient buildings.
Created in 2016, Building NRG provides building physics consultancy across the construction industry. With over ten years of building physics and project management experience, we work with architects, product manufacturers, façade & energy consultants and house-builders.Who we work with
Architects & House-Builders
Realise the potential in your project – we can be a part of your design team in all sizes of projects, providing the necessary energy analysis in meeting building regulation (Part L, Part C) and local planning requirements.
Façade / Energy Consultancies
Ensure your product hits the market with maximum impact by demonstrating its performance in line with the correct methods and standards, including Passive House components.
The quality of the fabric of a building is far-reaching. Not only does it affect a building’s energy in-use by minimising heat losses; it also affects the longevity, comfort and hence productivity of its users. A well-designed thermal envelope, therefore, has a hugely positive influence on a building’s value, both monetarily and to its users. Through our input, we can help add value to your project.
We've worked with George for several years, delivering technical expertise for our clients. George stands out in his field through getting to the heart of the requirement, clearly seeing the solution and delivering the result with a minimum of fuss.

We can highly recommend BEPC for thermal analysis and training on the Physibel software. The founder, George Higgs, combines a great background in thermal building physics with a thorough knowledge of the related national and international standards.

BFRC is delighted to be able to draw upon the technical expertise of the BEPC team. Our relationship has been forged over many years and in that time we've consistently found their input into the BFRC Scheme to be professional and technically robust. In our experience, BEPC personnel can be relied upon to provide valuable technical expertise to a high standard.

I have worked with George for over 15 years both at the BBA and now here at Elmhurst and have never failed to be impressed with his knowledge of building physics and, just as important the way he can communicate it to others. To steal a quote “if you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough”.

We (knauf Insulation) have worked with BEPC over a number of years now on various projects using different calculation techniques. We have found BEPC and George’s work to be diligent, thorough and accurate. An approach that reflects our aims and resonates the values of our business, it is for this reason amongst others that we continue to work with BEPC and hope to do so long into the future.
