Environmental consultancy is integrated into all services we offer at Buro Happold. It is a cornerstone of our business. We are regularly consulted by our designers to ensure that every aspect of our projects is environmentally sustainable from design, through construction and finally to its operation.
As we face up to the global challenges of climate change, rapid urbanisation and the depletion of natural resources our expertise is being drawn upon and challenged like never before.
It is easy to make claims that we are somehow different or better at this than other practices. What we can say is that we take great pride in the relationships we develop with environmental regulators in all jurisdictions so that our clients’ projects can satisfy all necessary environmental requirements.
We work on projects in some of the most environmentally degraded regions of the planet; however we believe that this is no reason to halt development and progress. Instead we assess the development’s impact on the environment and where necessary the impact of the environment on the development through an array of monitoring and modelling techniques; we then devise economically viable solutions through either masterplan design or environmental management. Having a specialist and integrated environmental capability within such an established company of engineers really does set us apart from the rest of the field.
