environmental design

space design has highlighted environmental policy as a key issue and is committed to affirm the responsibility of the architectural profession to contribute to the quality and sustainability of the natural and built environments.

Addressing the issues raised by environmental friendly development can reduce building costs, running costs, and maintenance costs. It can have commercial benefits whilst providing a healthier interior space for the occupants through the reduction of sick building syndrome.

We aim to encourage our clients and consultants on all projects to adopt sustainable measures in order to maximise the green potential available.

why use a RIBA chartered architect?

An RIBA Chartered Architect can help you realise your objectives and guide you through the design and construction process. They provide a service that extends well beyond producing a set of drawings – they will handle the paperwork, bring value for money, peace of mind and imagination to your project whilst keeping it on track.

Selecting the right architect is one of the most significant decisions a client can make.
