Sustainable Design The Co-op HQ designed to
achieve a Display Energy Certificate A-rating

Sustainable design

Sustainability forms the heart of our design approach and we are committed to ensuring that schemes are able to achieve the optimum social, economic and environmental performance. We recently worked on the Google HQ project in Kings Cross to set a framework to address multiple sustainability objectives. Working with our suppliers was key, translating requirements into key actions on a package by package basis. We also helped Google to create a database of the contents of all the materials, products and components for key packages to promote healthy materials.

Resource efficiency

We are committed to using natural resources responsibly to reduce our impact on the environment. We’ve pioneered the use of WRAP’s Resource Management Plan and now all our projects develop a bespoke strategy to ensure they are designed and constructed efficiently, by minimising the quantity of materials used and avoiding waste. As of 2013, we’ve reduced construction waste by 37% since 2006, and water consumption by 15% since 2010.
