To ensure a successful outcome it is crucial to consider sustainability at the earliest stage of a project. Hoare Lea Sustainability is therefore active at the pre-planning and planning stages, ensuring that appropriate objectives, targets and initial design strategies are established at the outset.
Our involvement at an early stage enables us to assess site opportunities and constraints, and work with clients and design teams to propose efficient strategies.
Our projects range from masterplans to individual buildings and our work encompasses energy and sustainability strategies, including proposals for waste management, water conservation, biodiversity, materials procurement, travel plans and sustainability management plans.
We have extensive knowledge of sustainability planning policy and have prepared many energy and sustainability statements that have contributed towards achieving planning approval.
Our capability includes feasibility studies for on-site and off-site renewable energy generation, district heating/cooling, and proposals for financing, procuring and managing projects.
We also undertake BREEAM, Code for Sustainable Homes and LEED environmental assessments.
