The more complex a design challenge, the more it benefits from multiple voices and philosophies. This conversation is across clients, planners, developers, consultants, engineers, market experts, citizens, public officials, specialist consultants, suppliers and contractors.
Buildings, neighbourhoods and cities can be designed to minimise pollution and carbon emissions. This implies not only using renewable energy sources (including wind, sun and water), but designing energy efficient buildings and masterplans that encourage vegetation and biodiversity.
We use an integrated process model for urban design and public buildings design which aligns community and ecological impacts at the outset. This produces high performance, high value civic solutions with fewer stakeholder variations and faster liaison times.
But mostly our buildings enjoy high community acceptance and support.
