Kelcroft is a full service consultancy headquartered in Hong Kong creating innovative built environment solutions across Asia.

As the total cost of building ownership continues to rise owners are acutely aware of the total cost of ownership. Tenants too want the lowest operating cost, an extra HK4 /per sqft. management fee for grade A buildings is a significant cost.

Of particular importance in the energy equation is the building envelope, it not only protects us from the elements, it determines the solar radiation throughput, light transmittance, and heat losses - these impact both the CAPex and Opex of the engineering systems.

Energy Costs

Kelcroft helps building owners make the right building envelope decision at the right time, at the design stage. Once complete, more than 50% of the lifetime operating cost will be spent on paying energy bills, with finance the next largest cost at 14%.
