Buildings and other structures consume enormous quantities of non-renewable natural resources during their life cycle.
Whether it is cement in the form of concrete for the structure or fossil fuel in the form of electricity, environmental aspects play an important role in all construction investments.
Energy consumption in the office buildings we have designed is 30 – 40% lower than in regular buildings of this type.
We can make the greatest impact on biodiversity through our supply chain and through large engineering projects.
Significant opportunities exist in construction to improve waste management and the effective use of resources.
It is important to control and manage the usual matters concerning dues, noise, run-off, light pollution, hydrocarbon contamination and increased transport.
