It’s all about quality of life

Green Infrastructure works with nature to deliver more sustainable approaches to engineering design, to provides environmental benefits such as improved water quality and urban heat amelioration. Inherently, through sensitive and locally relevant design, it also brings benefits to people, communities and biodiversity. We believe that the outcome of green infrastructure  should be an improved, more sustainable quality-of-life for all concerned. It is about creating an ecological framework to enhance the social, economic and environmental health of an area which is also resilient to the effects of climate change.

We are particularly active in the innovative application of green infrastructure in the urban environment. This for example includes water sensitive design and the improvement of microclimates through the installation of high quality living walls, green roofs, (including photovoltaic-integrated bio solar roofs), rain gardens and other green infrastructure elements

Our green infrastructure services include:

Policy, guidance, research and advocacy Audits, surveys and action plans Corporate strategies, including estate enhancement, and guidance on ongoing management and maintenance Design codes and masterplans Concept, specification, detailed design, planning, and supervision of construction and installation Training and community engagement Expert review, including green roof inspection and validation

Our approach to Green Infrastructure

Temple go above and beyond to enhance the social, economic, and environmental health of an area that is also resilient to the effects of climate change through Green Infrastructure.
