Our Office, Castle House, Sheffield S3 8LS


We are Ollio The Building Performance Consultancy - a professional practice dedicated to helping architectural or client project teams optimise the performance of new buildings for the people and businesses who use them.

We help end user clients to discover the value of a great building that supports a great business.


Starting with aiding better briefs using our unique Agile in Buildings Methodology, developing zero carbon strategies, thorough acting as Soft Landings Champions and Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) specialists, what ever the aspect to align building performance outcomes, we have the researched backed capability to create solutions that work best for the people who occupy built environments. 


Layered over all of this, fundamentally, we are chartered building services professionals with expertise in the design and advice of mechanical and electrical systems, healthy or WELL and zero energy buildings to drive improved building and people performance. 

Edward Murphy

Founder & Managing Director


Edward, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers worked with Arup as a designer and then Mott MacDonald as a Technical Director where he led the technical development of the multi award winning building services team in the Sheffield office.

The experiences of his latter ten years of building services practice of going back to completed buildings, led to the motivation to create Ollio, a fresh new building performance consultancy conceived to close the ever widening performance gap in property delivery by meeting the need of clients and their design teams who want to focus on the creation of greater value for the end users of buildings as customers; while simultaneously delivering high performance, low carbon environments that work as they were meant to.

He is a founding board and still a current member of the England branch of the International Building Performance and Simulation Association (IBPSA) which promotes the use of advanced analysis techniques.


He is a founding board member and Past President of ASHRAE UK Midlands Chapter. The Chapter is the first accredited chapter of ASHRAE in the UK promotes best practice in building services engineering.

We are partnered with a number of organisations who help us undertake our commissions. In this way we can provide a big company service but with the lower costs and increased responsiveness of a small yet highly competent professional consultancy practice.
