Mick was extremely helpful in sealing, taping up and generally advising us to get the plots passed. The help was much appreciated.

We would sincerely like to thank Stroma Built Environment (formerly HRS Services) for all that you contributed to a very successful and enjoyable project. I would again like to say on behalf of Morgan Sindall a big thank you for your efforts and hope this project is a fond memory for you as it is for us.
Matthew Bidewell, Morgan Sindall
I would just like to say it was a pleasure seeing Jon arrive on our site yesterday. I have done a few tests over the years with Jon and he always tries to get the best result for BAM. Thanks to Jon’s advice, everything came out looking good and I hope to see him on my next contract.
Ian Teasdale, BAM Construction Ltd
Bradley has always been helpful and responsive. Aside from commercial factors, our selection of these Energy services is often based on the level of service we receive, so it should not come as a surprise that Stroma are our first choice.
Mitchell Allen, Hill
Thank you to the guys who have been supplying last minute EPCs to assist our site teams. It has been greatly appreciated.
Jim Woodsford, Bovis Homes
I told our construction director that the modelling you carried out earlier was very interesting and useful. Good communication and call-backs when needed. We would definitely use your services again on future projects.
Vahid Kabodani, PPE Construction
We instructed Stroma Built Environment (formerly HRS Services) to perform a Thermographic Survey for us as we thought we had some problems with the Air Tightness of our Building. Richard and Andy turned up on time and straight away took a professional approach to our problems as the survey was carried out. They both came up with great solutions to help us and were very helpful in finding the problems we had. I would recommend Stroma to other people and use your company again without fail.

On a typical £20 million project clients can make an astonishing saving by seeking BREEAM credits in RIBA stages 1-4, rather than waiting until stages 5-6. Credits gained early may cost an average of £760, compared to around £14,000 in the latter project stages.
Over 21,000 Air Tightness Tests were conducted by our building compliance companies in 2016/17.

Project Brief: Stroma completed a range of pre-contract assessment works for Redbridge Borough Council in support of a planning application for 5 proposed development sites (consisting of 121 new dwellings), including an assessment of the available sunlight and daylight to the new and existing dwellings.
We assisted the design teams to re-model the designs in order to reduce impact and to satisfy planning conditions. Our energy consultants helped to steer the specification for the proposed dwellings – both fabric and services – in order to achieve compliance against the requirements of the London Plan, which required a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions beyond 2010 Building Regulations.
