sustainability

Burke Rickhards is committed to designing environmentally sustainable buildings and places. Seeking low carbon solutions across all our work is a challenge that allows us to push boundaries and think creatively.

We fully support the use of benchmark schemes such as BREAAM and Code for Sustainable Homes, meaning we can take a lead on the best way to ensure actual sustainable solutions.

Whilst providing the usual high quality services required by our clients, we will seek to specify and use materials and processes which have no undue negative environmental impact, which are efficient in their consumption of energy and which can be recycled, reused or disposed ´┐╝of safely.

Burke Rickhards fully supports and promotes sustainability within our Practice and our projects. We acknowledge the effect that climate change is having on our current and future lives, the need to protect our environment, enhance social cohesion, and ensure financial security for the present and future generations. Our Practice strives to minimise our own impact on the environment by making sustainability a fundamental part of the way we operate and approach the design and delivery processes of our developments.
