Renowned for our work in this area, we work closely with our partners to deliver efficient buildings where we aim for the highest possible sustainability credentials. We recognise our responsibility extends beyond ‘first use’, and our projects are designed to last, with designs that maximise reuse and minimise impact and waste. By incorporating passive environmental measures and innovative technology, we find harmony with beautifully pragmatic solutions.
Based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we approach each project using the eight RIBA Sustainable Outcomes as a core framework:
- Net Zero Operational Carbon
- Net Zero Embodied Carbon
- Sustainable Water Cycle
- Sustainable Connectivity and Transport
- Sustainable Land Use and Ecology
- Good Health and Wellbeing
- Sustainable Communities and Social Value
- Sustainable Life Cycle Cost
For each project, we look to develop these principles with clients and design teams across the RIBA Plan of Work, ensuring they form a consistent and fundamental part of the project design from start to finish.
