Building Performance

We are acutely aware that our greatest indirect impact is in our building designs, and we strive to provide efficient and low carbon solutions, targeting the RIBA 2030 Challenge targets where possible. We are introducing embodied carbon calculations and alternative methods of construction to assist in reducing whole life cycle carbon, as well as utilising our in house Passivhaus designers to help deliver low operational energy buildings. We have a great deal of experience in retrofitting existing buildings, either for new uses or to improve the existing layout for the current users.  In either case, improvements to the existing energy efficiency and performance of the fabric are critical to assisting in meeting our Climate goals. Our processes for assessing the potential for circular economy thinking on a project includes:


Build less

Build light

Build for the future
