Thrive

We want to take responsibility for our actions and demonstrate that there are solutions to the climate emergency that can enable us to thrive.

We have created a toolkit of design drivers to ensure that ethical, environmental and healthy principles are embedded in our schemes and procurement processes.

We support our teams to deliver places and processes that can improve our health, and protect and enhance our environment.


Sustainability

We have long been recognised for pioneering advances in energy efficient design. We deliver high-performance buildings that achieve measurable efficiency in materials and energy over their lifetime, meeting BREEAM, Global Real Estate Sustainability (GRESB) and Energy Performance Certification (EPC) benchmarks.

Millennium Sainsbury’s at Greenwich received the first BREEAM Excellent Award and Blue Planet Chatterley Valley was awarded the world’s first BREEAM Outstanding Design Award.

We also work to enhance the landscape environment around our buildings to create a positive environmental impact.

Wellbeing

Designing and delivering places that promote individual health and wellbeing is a fundamental cornerstone of our values.

Wellbeing is a philosophy that we consciously integrate into our work and environment for colleagues and clients, whether we’re using tried and tested ‘Activity Based Work’ principles to design a workplace that promotes creativity and collaboration while delivering measurable improvements in productivity, or encouraging flexible working practices among our own people.

Environmental Innovation

We are always forward thinking, keeping a step ahead, and in addition to embracing environmental sustainability we have recently added WELL™ Certification to the targets we set for the design, construction and maintenance of our buildings.

WELL™ Building Standard – administered by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) – is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of buildings that impact the health and well-being of people who use them. Occupier wellness is measured in the seven categories of air, water, nutrition, light, fitness, comfort and mind.

We are designing and delivering a new build project in the UK that is the world’s first pilot project for WELL™ Industrial Buildings accreditation.
