80% of buildings we will inhabit in 2050 already exist; most need mending.
The vast majority of them are inefficient, energy guzzlers that are already not fit for purpose! We believe that the mending and extensive refurbishment of our existing building stock is essential if the UK is to meet its obligations to cut greenhouse gas emmissions. When undertaking refurbishment projects we do not start with energy efficiency but instead work hard to understand the wants, needs and desires of the buildings users and then develop user cetered design proposal to meet their needs. This approach delivers value by improving social interaction, communication and knowledge sharing which are critical requirements of any high performing organisation.
