Sustainable, safe design realises projects with lasting value for people and the environment

2006 to Present

The practice uses a five stage model to support lasting value


Overview 

Sustainability and safety practice is an integral aspect of design and client advice services. It informs the right allocation of capital and human resources to support beneficial human welfare  and ecological diversity at least harm and investment cost.


Quality Management System (QMS)

To realise sustainable outcomes, the practice uses an ISO9001 level QMS and progressive safety methodology, illustrated below. The QMS is structured in five scope areas:  1. Input;  2. Activity;  

3. Impact;  4. Use harm/benefit;  5. Reuse/Recycle.  It is easily aligned to QMS on individual projects.


Decision making tools and processes 

Generic type 

The practice uses generic sustainability tools including UK Building Regulations, Local Planning Policies,  BREEAM and CDM 2015 to support realisation of sustainability and safety outcomes.


Project specific type

In addition, the  practice has unique expertise of more tailored project specific services involving design development through full scale mock ups, prototypes and performance testing.  Through these more robust and accurate tools,  more efficient client investment and effective decision making realises sustainability and safety performance including health and safety obligations.
