WHO WE ARE
We are Ollio, The Building Performance Consultancy - founded by Edward Murphy. We are a building performance consultancy, and design practice with an obsessive approach to helping architectural and client project teams deliver zero energy, zero-carbon buildings for the good of the climate and the people who use them.
The practice was conceived from the experiences of Edward, a chartered building services engineer with a developed habit of returning to his sometimes award-winning, highly sustainable projects to research how they performed in use and how they were being appreciated by those using them every day. Post-occupancy evaluation research showed most were not performing as expected. He found that much of the time and effort invested in constructing new buildings delivered the wrong product to the customer who used them in ways that were never envisaged by designers. The industry's understanding of what constituted value for the customer in use was deeply flawed. And without any structured way to counteract the problem, the industry will continue to deliver the same sub-optimal, poor performing outcomes for customers and the planet into the future.
Ollio was founded to help change this. To put our clients, architects, and developers on the right track to better zero energy, zero-carbon, people-friendly and healthy buildings.
Learning from other successful customer and product-centric industries led Ollio to develop Agile in Buildings , a structured methodology to allow design teams to discover with end-users where the business value proposition lies in new buildings and, from here, to predict how the built facility will function under designed in user behaviours post-occupancy.
Agile Methods combined with expertise as building services engineers, WELL Building practitioners, Scrum Masters post-occupancy evaluators and artificial intelligence literate zero energy designers - provides Ollio with a unique and extraordinary skillset to deliver zero energy, zero-carbon building, to secure repeatable, predictable performance and operational joy for owners and users alike.
