As a leader in an industry that contributes significantly to resource use and carbon emissions we are in a position to facilitate change and set an environmentally responsible agenda to reshape the design process. As architects and planners we want to use less of the world’s limited resources, and we have an ethical responsibility to ensure we play a significant part in the creation of sustainable projects. We see sustainable design as a driver, as an integral aspect of the creative process – equal to user satisfaction and contextual response.
Constant innovators of sustainable design solutions, we pioneered the integration of bio-filter wall technology in buildings, were early adaptors of geo-exchange technology to reduce energy consumption, and promoted grey water recycling long before building codes recognized the benefits.
Our insight on the impact of sustainable design continues to evolve as we challenge the norms of energy provision and utilization in projects. Through collaboration with our clients and consultant partners we seek to offer innovative solutions to address the principles of social, economic and ecological sustainability.
