Real Estate Development Business

Net Zero strategy development, involving: site team engagement, energy data analysis and dynamic thermal simulation modelling to first establish the performance of the buildings and then to map out a comprehensive net zero pathway. Additionally conducting a stakeholder engagement programme.

This London based company is a forward-thinking real estate development business with a focus on creative and sustainable spaces for working and living. With Verco, they developed a net zero pathway that indicated the costs and measures required to achieve their goals.


  • To increase engagement from a range of key stakeholders in the net zero transition process.
  • To provide strategic technical insight about the requirements for transitioning the site towards net zero performance.


  • Hosted a net zero webinar to engage a wide range of stakeholders.

  • Stakeholder interviews across five different organisations.

  • Documentation review, site visits and energy data analysis.

  • Development of thermal simulation models for both buildings using IES Virtual Environment.

  • Mapped a path to achieve EPC-B rating in line with MEES 2030 requirements.

  • Modelled various net zero interventions in IES VE and evaluated their impact.

  • Selected appropriate interventions for the net zero pathway, developed cost estimates, and then charted the whole net zero pathway to give a picture of the work and cost involved in reaching the buildings’ full technical potential.


Net zero pathway indicating the costs and measures required to:

  • Achieve EPC-B rating for MEES requirements.
  • Align with CRREM pathway targets for 2030.
  • Exploit the full technical potential of the building.
