Sustainability strategies for estates, masterplans and infrastructure

Our speciality is supporting public and private clients to develop and implement strategies to meet the environmental, social and economic challenges cities face.

Our service includes:

  • Developing project vision and objectives
  • Opportunity identification
  • Strategy and brief development
  • Feasibility studies
  • Project governance advice
  • Planning application support
  • Implementation support through design, procurement and construction
  • Project reviews and audits

We are valued for our strategic input into projects and we are often appointed at the early stages to develop sustainability strategies for projects ranging in scale from buildings and estates to community masterplans and major infrastructure schemes.

We have a proven track record through work on major development projects in the UK and around the world. Past clients include government development agencies, private developers, Universities, estate owners and local Governments.

Our approach is highly collaborative; working closely with clients and design teams we foster ideas and challenge current thinking to deliver better urban development. We offer practical support and advice communicated in a clear and relevant way to our clients.

We often find that people have differing views on what is meant by sustainable development or have different priorities. To help frame conversations, set priorities and identify competing objects, we use our sustainable development framework (see adjacent image).  Drawing on our expertise across these environmental and socio-economic themes, we take a systematic view, identifying opportunities for strategies and interventions to hit multiple objectives.
