building dynamic ENVIRONMENTAL

and Energy SIMULATION Consultancy with analysis

Provided throughout the UK AND WORLDWIDE


Using state-of-the-art software including Thermal Analysis Software (TAS), we create 3D models of buildings which allows us to identify the constructions, heating ventilation, and air conditioning HVAC systems needed for the project. After this, we then compare these systems against winter and summer weather data to identify the environmental performance characteristics of the building.

Corridor Overheating

We are able to gain an understanding of the temperatures and natural ventilation rates in the summer months from the Dynamic Simulation Modelling (DSM) data.


Upon analysing the data produced from the Dynamic Simulation Modelling, we are able to show hourly gains and HVAC room loads.


After simulating the energy performance of a building and the systems throughout the course of the year and closely monitoring the day-to-day results, we then produce Energy Performance Certificates.


CFD allows us to create 3D models of an entire building to study the external air and transient pollutant concentration levels.

“integral part of the design team”

“We have worked with Francis Vaughan on a number of new build schemes & found him to be most helpful, working together as an integral part of the design team. We wouldn’t hesitate employing Francis on future projects.” Craig Thelwell, Director, West Lancashire Electrical & Mechanical Contractors

“We have never been disappointed”

“F A Vaughan have worked for us on several projects ranging from stadia to residential. The services provided have varied form heat analysis to bespoke system energy and building performance. We have never been disappointed, Francis works very hard and professionally to achieve our requirements, some of which have been very impressive. This makes the service very good value for money. Thankyou for all your work.” Jeff Parkes, Director, For and on behalf of Jeff Parkes engineers Ltd

“His vast experience has been an invaluable”

“Francis has assisted us on a range of building types for almost 20 years, providing dynamic simulation modelling, overheating and energy analyses. His vast experience has been an invaluable asset in developing practical passive solutions to environmental control, and his clear and concise reports have been extremely useful in informing architects and clients on the background behind the science. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.” Michael Popper MA(Cantab) CEng MCIBSE MEI, MD of P3r Engineers Ltd, Building Services Consultants.

“Francis has always worked hard and been able to meet tight deadlines as needed and is a pleasure to work with”

“Francis was recommended to us to provide thermal modelling to evaluate overheating. We have utilised Francis’ services on a number of occasions now, to provide both CIBSE overheating analysis in residential schemes and also hybrid ventilation to classrooms to meet EFA standards and regulations. We have found Francis to have a huge amount of knowledge and experience which has been invaluable. Francis has always worked hard and been able to meet tight deadlines as needed and is a pleasure to work with. We were very pleased to receive the recommendation and are more than happy to recommend his services” John Holland – Director, D.W.Pointer & Partners Ltd

About Us

With access to the latest software, including Dynamic Simulation Modelling (DSM), we are able to provide comprehensive information on the environmental performance of a building. Here at F A Vaughan Ltd, we are experts within our field, and we pride ourselves on our ability to provide professional energy and environmental consultancy for clients involved in existing and proposed building projects. The quantitative results produced from the Dynamic Simulation Modelling allows design teams to judge the merits of proposed options in terms of the predicted internal environment, energy use, CO2 emissions, and related costs. Furthermore, as part of this service, we produce Level 5 Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) for complex new and existing buildings and systems. As well as UK projects we are also able to provide our services worldwide. Established since 1991, get in touch today to discover more about our extensive range of services.
