 We are an independent, energy-centric building services design consultancy - specialising in mechanical, electrical, public health and lifts - who actively place efficient solutions at the heart of everything we do. We view buildings not as static structures, but more as a space that needs to be able to adapt to environmental changes and usage patterns. To this end, we consider design resilience from the very outset of all projects.



Who we are

Established in 1957 as the Steensen Varming Mulcahy Partnership, we can proudly say that we have been designing innovative, sensitive solutions for an impressive client portfolio for 60 years. 

We have successfully brought the enduring principles of our heritage up to date through the collective wisdom of our dynamic team, delivering inventive, original and forward-thinking solutions, and driving every stage of the project forwards for successful and timely completion.

Building relationships is as important to us as designing buildings, so the team you meet at the initial interview stage will be the team you work with throughout the project. Every project we work on, from concept to completion, is led by one of our Directors.
