Sustainability

We believe that it’s our responsibility as architects to minimise the significant impact that both the construction and operation of buildings has on the environment. That’s why sustainable and low-energy strategies have been at the core of our approach to architectural design for over two decades.

Consideration for the social, economic and environmental impacts of a building is intrinsic to the early design process, and at the forefront of our thinking throughout the project life. Environmental modelling during the early stages enables us to offer performance certainty for our proposed design routes.We also aim to future-proof buildings, giving them the flexibility to be adapted over time in response to changes in climate, demand for new sources of energy, and developments in technology.

To keep up-to-date with emergent technology, environmental insights and approaches, we run a programme of specialist talks from guest speakers, and encourage our staff to attend external sustainability-related courses and seminars. We also have a dedicated sustainability team, providing expert advice and guidance for rhp projects to assist in achieving low energy and sustainable designs.

We are committed to reducing environmental impact of the use of energy and natural resources and are accredited under ISO 14001.
