We offer a market leading Sustainability Champion service where we create a bespoke schedule of metrics and targets for a development to achieve. These follow seven key criteria and using these themes creates sustainability strategies which are truly holistic and encompass best practice across each area. Our current criteria encompass best practice in the following:
During the design stages of developments, we work with the Design Team conducting workshops to ensure that targets can be achieved. We challenge the Design Team to think differently and incorporate measures that can make a lasting positive contribution.
Our Engineers consider initiatives and metrics which exceed those required by accreditation schemes such as BREEAM and investigate measures based on localised issues that could be incorporated. For example, on developments where water scarcity may be an issue, we may advise and investigate with the Design Team methods of reducing water consumption, methods to incorporate rainwater harvesting into the design, or investigate borehole water options.
We work across the design and in-use stages to ensure that the best practice measures that were conceived at design stage are realised in-use. Through monthly in-use sustainability reporting, we report on metrics to enable us to close the performance gap between design and operation.
