sustainability

bptw is passionately committed to designing thriving and sustainable places. As architects we recognise the need to address the key challenges - economic, social and environmental – facing society today but at the same time producing architecture that excites and inspires. We have outstanding experience in sustainable development having achieved both BREEAM Excellent in our commercial work and Code for Sustainable Homes Code Level 5 for new housing.

We use a ‘fabric-first’ approach to make sure our buildings are as efficient as possible, and we aim to minimise environmental impact and optimise energy efficiency in every scheme we design.

We have an in-house sustainability team led by a Partner, Mark Waite, who drive and implement initiatives in areas of sustainability that relate to all our business activities and work. We aim to go beyond our own sustainability checklist and develop schemes that aspire to be low carbon models and meet energy targets for the future.
