Design for Performance
Our modeling team is a market leader in digitalisation. Adopting ‘Design for Performance’ methodology and working with our consultants to create ‘Digital Twin’ models, they can analyse and influence building services system selections and controls to optimise whole building systems and minimise operational energy. Our experts advise both clients and design teams on the most cost-effective and low-carbon systems that will align with their aspirations, whilst satisfying regulatory targets and project budgets.
The increased industry focus on embodied material carbon and the need to achieve the RIBA 2030 Climate Emergency targets has seen our team drive key design decision-making and steer procurement direction for sourcing of materials in many of our building designs. Our Benchmarking Assessors have delivered some of the highest sustainability ratings (BREEAM Assessments, WELL Standard Assessments, Passivhaus Assessments and Home Quality Mark).
We’re proud to have won a range of best-in-class BREEAM awards every year since 2013
Our three pillars of sustainability
Creating productive environments.
Reducing consumption of non-renewable resources and minimising waste.
Cutting energy usage, ensuring high retention and productivity of employees.
Our sustainability champions work alongside our building services and structural engineering consultants to define clear sustainable goals and targets influenced by the UN Sustainability Goals.
