Sustainability is good for the environment; it will benefit your project too. Sustainable developments that produce tangible economic, environmental and social benefits, gain far greater support from local planning authorities and other regulatory bodies, and experience more community acceptance.
Our diverse experience, gained over 20 years working with a wide range of clients, enables us to develop sustainable solutions for projects that contribute directly to achieving legislative compliance or planning permissions.
This includes preparing statutory Sustainability Appraisals and Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEAs) to inform land use planning and strategic-scale projects, and undertaking a range of technical assessments to help design sustainability into a project to improve its environmental, social and economic performance. There are numerous tools available to support this and we are familiar with the use of many of these tools such as BREEAM, CEQUAL, Carbon Calculators and Code for Sustainable Homes.
We can help you improve the environmental, social and economic impact of your project. We closely monitor regulatory developments to help clients identify and deliver improvements to their projects that meet requirements set down in national and international regulation to protect air, water, land and waste. We work closely with our clients to develop sustainability strategies and assist with aspects such as EMS compliance, carbon, energy and water resource reduction, and climate change resilience.

- Sustainability Appraisal
