What is being said about us?
The understanding between engineer and architect is essential if the required new boundaries of modern building design are to be achieved whilst delivering beautiful architecture. Our partnership with SVM, which extends beyond 10 years, is a living example of how close, cross-discipline collaboration creates the results that allow innovative design to be realised.
The relationship between SPPARC and SVM is anchored by the clear and professional advice their team is able to provide from the outset of a project whilst their approachability and can-do attitude makes SVM a rare consultancy and a pleasure to work with.
Trevor D. Morriss, Principal at SPPARC ARCHITECTURE
SPPARC are currently working collaboratively with the SVM team on a number of high profile development projects. From the inception of the design process and throughout the detailed design stages, the vision for each project requires working with like-minded people to create inspirational architecture that embraces London’s carbon reduction targets without compromising visual integrity - this is not an objective that is easily achieved.
The energy experts at SVM provided invaluable guidance and cutting-edge modelling techniques to support and inform the design process enabling us to embed the energy and sustainability demands seamlessly into the architectural solution.
We initially appointed SVM to undertake the energy strategy and building services designs for our Edgbaston development. Over the 3-year period of our working relationship we have found them to be a knowledgeable team who have added real value to our fast-moving development and expansion programme. SVM are now responsible for the M&E designs for 11 of our current 13 live development sites.
The team at SVM work hard to keep our other retained consultants (including one other M&E consultant) informed of opportunities to improve our product. During regular meetings their team provide us with guidance and advice on performance enhancing and energy saving techniques, often supported by explanatory models and calculations enabling us to make informed decisions and refinements.
