Our clients want us to develop new products and approaches that help them minimise the environmental impacts of their projects and which create social value for local communities. Our commitment to innovation and modern methods of construction enables us to help clients meet their sustainability ambitions. 

Reducing embodied carbon

We’re working towards 2030, future-proofing the built environment by prioritising lower-carbon design, engineering, and construction. By building low carbon now, we’re protecting our clients against future costs of retrofitting or offsetting. Our carbon calculator, design partnerships and new product development are reducing e the embodied carbon in our projects.

Low carbon concrete used in all new UK projects from April 2023 onwards

Responsible innovation

We are constantly innovating to make more sustainable products and solutions available to our clients. Whether that’s reimagining design, materials or techniques, we’re working hard to deliver smarter buildings and infrastructure that are better for people, the environment and communities.

For instance, our manufacturing led approach to construction, called DfMA 70:60:30, combines digital design and engineering and modern manufacturing technologies to deliver higher quality products in a greener and safer way. It also means products can be disassembled at end-of-life and reused. 

Supply chain excellence

We work closely with our supply chain partners and elevate the procurement process with sustainable standards, industry partnerships and sponsorships.

  • We work with peers and supply chain partners within a number of forums, recognising that working together is the best way to make progress. We’re longstanding members of the Supply Chain Sustainability School and are on the School’s Board in the UK and Australia.
  • In the UK we’re aligned with the ISO 20400 sustainable procurement standard and are assessed using that framework.
