Simply put, the proper engineering of buildings and facilities has the most capacity to make a major contribution to a more sustainable future for our planet. Buildings typically represent more than 40% of energy consumption in any developed country, so retrofitting and engineering new builds can make a significant impact.
At the heart of every project is the goal of building a more sustainable world. In every phase of each project, planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and demolition, we week to use best practices and the most relevant techniques to build sustainably, while we’re building a sustainable space.
Our teams aim to meet present day needs for housing, working environments and infrastructure without compromising the ability of generations to meet their own needs in the future. We incorporate elements of economic efficiency, environmental performance and social responsibility – and contribute even more including architectural quality, technical innovation and transferability.
