Sustainable Design Management
Sustainable design encompasses a great deal more than just achieving
reductions in energy and water. Creating environmentally responsible
and efficient buildings requires a shift in both design approach and
practice amongst varying disciplines.
We proactively coordinate and facilitate the sustainable design process
within the design team and client body through setting feasible targets,
disseminating relevant education and information, and demonstrating
measurable progress against recognized criteria.
The starting point is the establishment of the commercial viability
requirements of the "green" aspects against which appropriate
technologies are evaluated – the most complex and expensive technology
is often not the best solution.
Early and frequent evaluation will typically enable more successful
green strategies. With proper evaluation and decision making,
unfeasible interventions can be discarded early allowing for more time
and attention to develop the attainable strategies.
The focus is that strategies move from the ‘reports’ into
the building within cost and the benefits are clearly expressed to
the design team, client and tenants.
