As property becomes subject to more regulation and raised expectations, owners and occupiers will be exposed to new challenges and costs. In addition, transparency and comparability are increasingly demanded both by governments and markets across the globe. In this new context, the sustainability performance of buildings is beginning to significantly impact budgets and reputations.
We have extensive experience in sustainability. We have written industry guidance for the Government's Carbon Reduction Commitment regulation, advised the Department of Energy and Climate Change on its formulation, and provided Government with official costs for low/zero carbon buildings. The advisory role that we fulfil for central Government provides us with unique insights. We know what works, we know what it costs and we know what is coming next. This means our clients understand how new factors are going to influence their organisation and we help them plan for the future before events force decisions on them.
