Environment, energy and sustainability

Our work demonstrates the potential for creating long-term value by future-proofing your real estate. We’re different because we take a strategic, scientifically informed and commercially focused approach to environmental, sustainability and energy considerations, with everything covered.

Environmental: a multi-service offering

We offer a truly broad-based service, with a full range of specialisms on hand. We stand apart for having a dedicated in-house environmental team, combining deep scientific insight with commercial acumen. Anne Johnstone, who heads the team, was formerly Chair of UKELA (UK Environmental Law Association) and has been shortlisted for a number of industry awards. We provide environmental risk and impact assessments, surveys and monitoring, drawing on expertise across the business to provide a more rounded and considered view point. Our team also informs and supports all our services, saving clients time and money by dealing with environmental issues at an early stage.
