Lateral Group Lateral Group Lateral Group Lateral Group

Lateral thinking is the process of solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using reasoning that is not immediately obvious.

Our perspective differs from that of conventional multi-disciplinary built environment professionals, hence the name.

Our experienced engineering teams are trained in the use of a lateral approach, utilising the latest technologies and providing optimum building services solutions.

The main focuses of our business are low carbon MEP design, energy management, engineering technical management (ETM) or commissioning management, security, and architecture. These are carried out by our highly qualified, award-winning team of low carbon consultants - all with a wealth of experience across both public and private sectors. A term commonly used in our industry is environmental engineering (low carbon), a description which ties in well with the principles behind our company. Our ability to encompass all aspects of building design allows us to ensure the final engineering solution takes into account everything that impacts on the internal environment of a building and its performance.

This approach allows our clients to realise the benefits of reduction in building energy consumption, carbon footprint and running costs - improving workplace environments benefiting productivity and driving value.
