Humans have modified their environment since time immemorial. Good planning is required to get the best value out of the environment, whether through single structures or larger scale towns and urban planning. Design must be responsive to climatic conditions, buildings must be environmentally friendly, and within reason make use of locally available or produced materials so that local people can derive maximum benefit from developments. Qualified staff and dedicated associates work closely together with local communities, local and regional government and developers to pursue high quality built environments for optimal benefit that are vibrant, environmentally sound and aesthetically pleasing.
- Drawing up policy guidelines for physical planning frameworks
- Designing places, shelter and spaces for diverse human activities and functions
- Harmonising built environment with natural, social and cultural heritage assets
- Incorporating built environment projects in development frameworks at an early stage so they can add value to social and natural environments rather than detract from them
