Sustainable Architecture Our Future

We benefit our developer clients and end users by providing a comprehensive, award winning, design service from inception through to completion for all aspects of sustainable design and specification. We are committed to the principal of environmentally, socially and economically sustainable development, which raise the quality of life and seeks to conserve the earth’s resources, reduce pollution and preserve wildlife and it’s ecology.

Sustainability is an area that is fundamental to our design philosophy. Our sustainability Mentor advises on all the measures available to us to improve the performance of the buildings and to challenge our proposals to reduce the collective environmental impacts during their construction process and their lifecycle.

PCPT is helping clients address the environmental and sustainability implications of their new-build or refurbishment projects, providing Sustainability Statements to support planning applications.

With extensive knowledge of the housing sector, PCPT are able to deliver the aims of The Code by providing guidance on the construction of high performance homes built with sustainability in mind.

Experience of delivering many schemes to a minimum of Code Level 3, we are ideally placed to assess your scheme to the new mandatory minimum levels of performance across all issues including:

  •  Energy efficiency /CO2
  •  Water efficiency 
  •  Surface water management 
  •  Site Waste Management
  •  Household Waste Management
  •  Use of Materials

Code assessments are carried out in two phases:

  •  An initial assessment and interim certification is carried out at the design stage
  •  Final assessment and certification is carried out after construction see below

As well as offering pure assessment services, PCPT are able to offer many additional design and advisory services to help your development achieve your desired Code Level.
