Gaia Research offer research services, design advice, brief writing, building evaluation, training, community consultation, feasibility studies, and environmental engineering strategies. We support a wide range of public and private sector clients, architectural & engineering practices and integrated design teams across the UK to deliver affordable, sustainable building projects.
We provide advice on building & infrastructure at all stages from policy development through inception & briefing, concept & detailed design to preparation of tender documentation, construction and handover. We provide guidance on material specification and technology.
We have developed genuinely bespoke appraisal tools for clients based on specific needs, aspirations and priorities.
Using our experience it is possible to deliver sustainable buildings at the same cost as standard construction. This relies only on bringing together an effective combination of commitment and information with the right balance of incentives and prescription.
Our current and recent portfolio includes university campus projects, research, office and teaching facilities, schools, housing, visitor centres and community facilities, housing, factory and sports buildings.
