Sustainability

Our approach to sustainability is twofold; firstly, in terms of stewardship of the historic environment for future generations and secondly, in minimising the use of non-renewable resources. Our conservation principles aim to retain and repair rather than replace existing fabric wherever possible. When building anew, we focus on natural, breathable and sustainable materials.

We are well versed in integrating both modern and traditional technologies in historic buildings and interiors to make them environmentally sustainable, energy-efficient and fit for modern purpose. The Practice has an active sustainability group that meets regularly to further our research in integrating new sustainable technology into our projects and monitor our offices’ energy use.

We are accredited ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems with corporate and individual memberships held with The Green Register of Construction Professionals. Our projects have been recognised through a number of sustainability awards for multiple projects, including the Green Apple award.
