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.

Working with our partners, using Agile Methods and other new strategies, we help end user clients to discover the value of a great scope or brief for a building that supports a great business ;  then work with the business to set in place the foundations for an exceptional outcome in use. 

Some clients ask isn't that what we pay an architect for? The answer is no, because clients simply don't ask for buildings that specifically add to their business growth stack. And if they did, there are only a handful of architects who would say they know how to achieve it. We are not architects, we are building performance strategists, shaped specifically to help you achieve a building that will provide greater strength in depth to your people, your clients and your growth stack.


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