Inhabit amplifies sustainable building design capabilities with WMEboom acquisition
Inhabit is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of WMEboom, an award-winning environmental design and engineering company based in London.
Inhabit’s capabilities in façades, sustainability, structure, and environmental design, coupled with WMEboom’s expertise in sustainable building performance will enable the company to offer clients a complete suite of services which improve the embodied and operational carbon of buildings – from outside the building envelope all the way through the inside of the building.
WMEboom’s highly skilled team of mechanical, electrical, public health and controls engineers are already fully integrated into Inhabit’s London office with the teams actively delivering projects together under the Inhabit brand.
Tony Alvaro, Chief Executive Officer of Inhabit, said:
“This acquisition signifies a key milestone in our exciting journey towards becoming a holistic specialist solution provider. With the integration of WMEboom, Inhabit now delivers expert analysis of building performance as a whole. The acquisition significantly strengthens the capability of our UK and Europe teams, who can also leverage the expertise and support of our global teams to deliver sustainable building performance design. I’m delighted to have WMEboom with us and look forward to delivering ambitious environmental and low-carbon design together.”
WMEboom’s expertise in net zero carbon and building performance will support Inhabit’s design studio in addressing the industry’s challenges in meeting 2050 carbon targets and transitioning to a circular economy. This interdisciplinary approach will enhance the ‘golden thread’ related to the Building Safety Act and assist in the industry’s necessary cultural shift towards safer, better performing, sustainable buildings.
