The future built environment will be intelligent, using innovative techniques and technology to reduce cost, rejuvenate our environment and integrate communities. Sustainability, the confluence of environmental, social and economic objectives, is at the heart of our advice to clients, from setting the parameters for high speed rail to new housing development. We work with developers, design teams, planners and contractors to plan and develop an intelligent built environment.
Temple turns the concept of sustainability into a practical, commercially-focused solution for clients. To this end we combine technical advice in areas such as socio-economics, energy, resources efficiency, air quality and biodiversity to ensure projects are aligned with the need for aspects such as health and well-being, employment and leisure time alongside growth, profit and economic prosperity. Understanding priorities and putting forward innovative solutions where appropriate are also important elements of our work.
Our approach to innovation is backed up by a long track record of robust technical expertise, which we apply in our assessment of the impact of development and in helping our clients to meet the requirements of local and national policy. For the High Speed 2 project, for example, we conducted a wide-ranging Appraisal of Sustainability (AoS), providing expert technical advice on different sustainability topics. On the Meridian Water housing scheme we have advised on lifestyle benefits such as recreation, employment and waste recovery.
Our sustainability value includes:
- Delivering solutions which are both practical and commercial.
- Aligning different aspects to ensure successful long term outcomes.
- Combining technical and strategic advice across different disciplines.
