We have considerable experience in providing advice to local authorities on policy development and implementation. We have provided training to planning and building control officers, technical analysis to provide the evidence base for new policies and independent assessments of planning submissions.
Much of our work involves helping clients through the regulatory and planning regimes. However, it is all the more satisfying to work with developers keen to design and construct buildings that extend the boundaries of sustainability regardless of the regulations that may or may not apply.
We can provide advice and assistance throughout the project to investigate the potential for measures that will minimise the environmental impact of the building, improve its carbon footprint both during construction and once operational, and enhance the environmental integrity of the project.
