To be recognised for excellent design, client support, and strong relationships.
Our mission is to provide a single point of support and design for all areas of building services from feasibility through Construction, to maintenance and building performance support, verification/ monitoring.
Our values are a strong base of corporate ethics in business and client relationships. Strong long term relationships are formed on trust, credibility and integrity. Our design values are based on total integrated and sustainable design. The building services need to support, influence and integrate harmoniously with the architecturally built form, whilst adopting low energy, water and carbon solutions.
Motivation and CultureOur engineers are motivated to succeed in both the design process and the relationship process. We have a culture of seeing our clients as friends. The benefit to ourselves and our clients is that human nature drives us to support those we consider friends.

Sustainable DesignJHA Consulting Engineers is committed to sustainable design within all projects. We constantly research new technologies to support global efforts in the reduction of Green House gases and reduce energy and water consumption. We aim to integrate sustainable solutions directly into the design process, targeting first principles approaches to optimising critical aspects such as thermal comfort, daylighting, lighting amenity, and water minimization, rather than providing purely “add-on” solutions. We provide full technical assessment of sustainable initiatives to test concepts before applying them to designs. We also aim to not just follow the industry but to challenge conventional thinking in order to optimize outcomes. Increasingly, as sustainable targets increase, this approach needs to be taken. We understand the implications of this. Our company personnel include Greenstar & Nabers accredited professionals. Our environmental section is capable of providing expert advice on sustainable strategies, implementation including assistance with Green Building Fund Applications.

- Greenstar compliant design
