Sustainability

Our commitment to sustainable design has been a core focus of our firm since its very beginnings. Long before it became recognised as a global necessity, we worked with clients to devise long-lasting, economically-viable solutions that help save materials and energy, reduce waste and that holistically enhance and integrate with a coherent architectural expression.

 

For the past four decades we have systematically increased our knowledge in this sector and we are now recognised leaders in the design of environmentally-responsible architecture. We have helped produce some of the greenest buildings in the world and our projects have been awarded multiple BREEAM Outstanding and LEED Platinum ratings. Our Practice's quality and environmental management is both ISO 9001.2008 and ISO 14001.2004 certified.

 

We realise that projects require varying levels of sustainability and we work collaboratively with our clients and consultants to determine which features present the greatest value for money for each building. We promote sustainability in both our Practice and our buildings from the first conceptual sketches through to the completion of a project. This allows us to seamlessly integrate environmentally-conscious features and also to make fundamental decisions regarding sustainability early in the design process which saves both time and money.
