Sustainable Construction

The word “sustainable”
can have many meanings.

The dictionary states sustainability as; “Able to be maintained at a certain rate or level” and in an environmental context reflected in this document “conserving an ecological balance by avoiding depletion of natural resources.”

Our approach to low energy buildings encompassed all aspects of sites, building and developments from the orientation through to occupancy control. Having a low carbon footprint must be captured across the board and is in our DNA. Making small steps in making the right choices and implantation makes a huge difference to our environment.

“Sustainability is not just about ticking boxes and talking about new technologies, it’s embedding a responsibility and mindset in our staff and collaborators that we must reduce our power and water consumptions, thereby helping to control emissions and pollution levels” – Louise Collins, Director – Projects
