Your building. Your comfort.

Our expertise.

Our philosophy

The delivery of comfortable, safe and healthy internal environments is at the heart of CORA’s philosophy. Whether it is an existing or a new build, CORA adopts a best-for-project approach.

This is achieved through careful consideration of the clients’ needs and implementing these by working in a collaborative, integrated and holistic manner as part of a professional team. At CORA, we believe that the built environment must improve the natural world not detract from it.


For us, a successful design would be one that doesn’t need complicated heating, ventilation or air conditioning systems but still achieves maximum comfort and productivity.


Sustainability is a key factor in our working lives and the design solutions that we bring to our work. Our business and our work will try to improve the environment rather than detract from it.


A secure place to work means financial stability that is achieved through a relentless pursuit of excellence and a concern for clients and staff alike.
