Our qualified Design Engineers have up to date knowledge of the latest products, evolving technology, and current legislation. We are able to provide you with energy efficient solutions that are fully compliant with industry regulations.

Our designs are always project specific, meeting the requirements of the customer and what is best suited for the property. The process begins with detailed room by room heat loss calculations, using approved software packages enabling Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) registration. Our Designers use cad design and drawing packages and are able to produce circuit layout drawings for radiant underfloor heating systems, plant, distribution systems and general layout plans.

Frequently asked questions about Design Services

What are the charges/fees for Mechanical Design Services?

Our design costs are included within your installation price. Following a guide estimate, we will then produce a specification estimate where we ask for a small fee to complete the detailed heat loss calculations, but when you proceed to contract this fee is credited off your final price.

Can you offer an M&E package?

We are a heating Company, providing mechanical design and installation. We are able to offer electrical services to complete the electrical supplies and connections to our systems using approved partners, but do not complete general domestic electrical designs.

Do you offer Design Services for Commercial & Residential properties?

Our usual services include designs for domestic, large domestic, barn conversions and small commercial projects. Please see to our projects page for a selection of completed installations.

Is it possible to talk to a Designer during the process to discuss the design and make changes to suit our requirements?

Yes, of course. We are happy to discuss your expectations and provide advice on the most suitable solution. We can also explain how the various systems work and how to operate and change settings for optimum efficiency.

Can I control my heating system using a mobile app?

We are able to provide designs with the necessary controls that will allow you to control your system via a mobile app. We are also able to offer a monitoring service to review your system remotely and advise setting adjustments to optimise operation.

What information is required to complete a design?

We will require a floor plan (architects/estate agent/sketch) detailing room sizes, heights, window/door sizes along with general insulation levels and existing heating provisions for completion of a guide estimate. For detailed designs a site survey is required (with one of our staff) to confirm building details, plant locations and installation details.

“We looked for comparative local companies, R A Brown were the only one who could offer all we needed Design and Installation for each product type (GSHP, UFH, MVHR), we wanted responsibility to be with one company and we are very pleased with the finished house and installation”

Mr L, New Build Norfolk

“Your designer has been a breath of fresh air right from the start.  He has challenged many aspects of the design we initially had in place and formulated a brilliant design that is already proving dividend in reality.”

Mr H, New Build, Norfolk

“You came highly recommended by our architect and after speaking with you we were very impressed with the whole company and the ideas you put forward”
