As a practice, we are working to put sustainability at the forefront of our decision making, both in the way we design buildings and the way we operate as a company. We are using the guidance of RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge and the RIBA Sustainable Outcomes Guidance to help achieve these goals.
We want to achieve, amongst other targets, Net Zero Whole Life Carbon through our work, beginning with our highly focused sustainable pioneering project Orford Mews which is set to outperform all current certification and targets in the UK.
Our designs will be lead by passive sustainable design principles, material specification and guided by the RIBA Sustainable outcomes, which are derived from the UN Sustainable Development goals:
• Net-zero operational carbon
• Net-zero embodied carbon
• Sustainable water cycle
• Sustainable connectivity and transport
• Sustainable land use and biodiversity
• Good health and wellbeing
• Sustainable communities and social value
• Sustainable life cycle cost
Every project will be measured by these standards and will become a priority in our everyday work.
