The main areas of the business being Building Physics, Environmental Wind Modelling, Pharmaceutical processes and Fire and smoke analysis. The firm has also specialised in energy analysis of Buildings in the concept stage and operational. The K8TMon energy management software was developed 6 years ago and has been key to optimising building performance. Paul developed the datacentre infrastructure and management (DCiM) software tool called K8TRAM which allows management and analysis of datacentres providing high level of consultancy to Deloitte Touche DCarbon8, BT, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, and Standard Bank of South Africa, African Bank, Tsystems etc..
