This week’s battering of Britain’s coastlines is yet another violent warning to us all to consider how our actions affect our planet.
As Architects, here at Nye Saunders, we believe that sustainability is an essential element of our designs.
Adding sustainable sources of energy production such as a ground source heat pump when designing a refurbishment or extension project is a step in the right direction. Embracing passive strategies for new builds from the outset is even better as this can significantly reduce the need for those remedial measures later on.
Even something as basic as determining for our clients the most efficient positioning of their new home on the site to make best use of the sun can have a lifelong impact on how that building performs.
