Design Support for Colt Conditions
Colt offers design and problem solving advice to support designers, consultants and developers during the design phase of new buildings or for the refurbishment of existing stock.
Design advice and problem solving
Colt experts rely on a wide portfolio of products and technologies across very different specialties, such as climate control, solar shading and smoke ventilation. They have the experience to advise architects and consultants on the best combination of products to achieve the desired effect and performance.
Simulations and calculations for top performance
We can provide heat and smoke simulations using the latest technologies, such as Computational Fluid Dynamics, when advising on smoke control schemes. On solar shading projects, Colt experts can provide calculations of sun angles and heat loads to ensure the building's best performance.
Designing energy efficiency into a building
Colt experts can help architects design energy efficiency into a building, developing solutions that integrate natural ventilation, natural lighting and shading systems within one design and control system.
Making architectural statements that perform
Colt experts can work with architects to create solutions of strong visual impact that meet the project's functional requirements.
Surveys and advice for successful refurbishing projects
When a building is refurbished, Colt is able to unlock considerable potential for improvements in energy performance, fire safety and appearance. Colt experts can carry out detailed surveys to identify the necessary adaptations and upgrades to optimise the system's effectiveness and performance.
