Sustainable design

Jack Judge House and Library

Our philosophy is simple – sustainable development is essential to safeguard the ecological balance of the planet for future generations.

We take an innovative approach to sustainability. We’ve achieved two BREEAM “excellent” buildings, several “very good” – and housing which meets Code 4 for sustainable homes.

Our overall design strategy incorporates renewable sources of energy at an early stage. That way we make sure that the building model is the most appropriate for the site.

In our designs we pay particular attention to:

  • acoustic quality
  • thermal comfort
  • the right lighting levels
  • views out
  • natural ventilation
  • sustainable urban drainage systems.
