The performance of a building is a matter of balance between the energy use of building systems or services and the losses and gains occurring through the building envelope. A comprehensive and integrated approach to the façade engineering and building services is essential for low energy sustainable buildings to create suitable habitable conditions.


A net zero building is simply a building that has no net carbon emissions during its construction and operation. To achieve this goal, a hierarchical approach is used, which involves reducing the energy demand, increasing energy efficiency, and offsetting any remaining carbon emissions through renewable energy or carbon credits.

The UK has set a net zero carbon emissions target by 2050. In addition to the national net zero target, the UK has set interim targets which include a 68% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and 78% by 2035 under the Paris Agreement.

Wintech’s performance analysis enables a thorough comprehension of the potential performance levels of a building’s envelope and systems. This analysis can be employed to evaluate the Net Zero potential of a proposed design without compromising its architectural vision.

Now, more than ever, it is crucial to transition to net-zero. What sets us apart is our capacity to make complicated problems easy to understand and to provide simple and practical actions to implement.
