From sustainable landscapes and materials lifecycle assessment to Living Building Challenge and Passive House design and modelling, our outlook on sustainability begins at the very start of the process and influences each subsequent design stage.
The advantage of working with an integrated design team with a strong sustainability practice is that we’re able to make decisions at all scales that benefit the final rating and lived experience of a place that’s economically sustainable.
It means less maintenance over time, streamlined cost efficiencies, and better value for our clients.
Our team has committed to the following:
We commit to a shift from ‘sustainability’ (the practice of ‘do no harm’ or ‘do less harm’) to ‘regeneration,’ wherein we actively aim to solve the climate crisis by creating places and environments that regenerate our world socially, economically, and ecologically.
We became signatories to the Architects’ Declare sustainability initiative in 2019. You can find out more about the initiative here.
Sustainability also means acting sustainably in our everyday lives — which means being sustainable in the way we work. You’ll see a focus on waste management, digitisation, and becoming paperless, along with a wide range of green initiatives and practices in our workplace.
