Sustainable Design

A broad definition of Sustainable is:

"Use of the Earth's resources at a rate at which they can be replenished."

The design stage of a project is an ideal time to work toward this because at the early stages changes are cheaper and easier to make.

What can we do?

Approaches to Sustainable Design that we can make include:

  • Thoughtful use of the site
  • Considering sustainability at the early stages when locating a building or adapting one can be very effective
  • Minimize energy requirements
  • Protect and conserve water
  • Choose materials and products with consideration for their effects
  • Design for a quality indoor environment
  • Consider maintenance, durability and reuse
  • Design a building as part of the overall environment: landscape, ecology and society.

I will work with you to achieve the level of sustainability that you want for your building, helping you to choose the materials, elements and arrangements that will suit you and the way you use the spaces we create.
