Our responsibility to the environment is primary in our approach to all the work we do. With this principle we ensure that our work is designed from the outset as sustainable, rather than using high tech ‘green’ solutions as an afterthought. Through careful design, planning and coordination we ensure the efficiency of projects to minimise their impact and reduce any potential waste of valuable materials and resources. We are committed to producing work that performs to a high level of environmental excellence regardless of the scale of the project. The practice is ISO 9001 and 14001 registered.

Policy & Certification of Standards
Our practice has sustainability champion who promotes green design throughout the practice and helps maintain our ISO 14001 2015 Environmental Management System.
We undertook a full assessment on site and using record drawings and other information to identify the systems used and their likely future suitability in relation to the new testing regime and conclusions coming from the BRE and the Department for Communities and Local Government regarding cladding systems and materials used previously on high rise blocks.
The works have significantly improved the insulation values which will reduce CO2 emissions through reduced heating requirements.
Tangmere is one of the few publically owned solar farms in the country and has been designed to produce an output of 5Mega Watts at peak performance. The electricity which is being generated is fed straight back into the National Grid with West Sussex County Council being the beneficiary of the feed-in tariff.
We were responsible for ensuring the farm was constructed in accordance with the original design details, that the required testing and certification was carried out and that the financial aspects of the project were controlled.
The project cost £5.25m and was completed within an overall period of twelve weeks.
Tangmere Solar Farm has been a very successful venture for West Sussex County Council and forms part of a wider programme of solar installations being undertaken by the Council.
