Sustainable Design

We are committed to environmental sustainability in all the buildings we design and conserve. With our holistic knowledge approach to sustainable design, we create buildings that last and can adapt over many generations.

Our work extends the life of buildings by creating sustainable contemporary spaces for tomorrow or adapting existing buildings. We create architecture that is flexible, cost-efficient, and resilient, ensuring the longevity of our built environment. Our solutions are energy-efficient, and we use ethically sourced materials and utilise state-of-the-art technology to reduce carbon footprints.

We maintain the same commitment across all our projects and have achieved BREEAM Outstanding and Excellent ratings in some of the most historically sensitive settings, including the Old Duchy Palace in the United Kingdom. As advocates for retrofit, we are proud supporters of both the Architects Declares and Heritage Declares movements.

Our outstanding services deliver:

● Adaptive re-use to existing buildings

● Strategic sustainability planning

● Sustainable building materials research

● Green building guidelines, specification, and integration in design

Designing sustainably involves a collective ambition across the built environment, and empowering responsible change for the future of all. We have joined the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge, with the aim, across our projects, for zero whole life carbon for all new and retrofitted buildings by 2030.
