Working Towards Net Zero Carbon Buildings
Sustainability is at the core of our thinking. Designing using existing resources, facilities and products has a significant and real impact on our planet. We will look to ensure each of our projects meets the clients requirements, targets and sustainability commitments. We believe it’s about a partnership at the outset; long-term, everyone benefits.
Our NHS, as a key role model nationally, has set ambitious sustainability targets which our construction projects will be a significant part of. We’ve developed our offering to ensure we can be a key partner in achieving these targets.
Building for the future
Sustainability in construction isn’t just about using sustainably sourced building resources. As a designer and builder of new spaces, we understand our duty of care to ensure we consider the future impact on our environment.
The full life-cycle of the building, including construction, maintenance and disposal must be considered when the project is designed to ensure minimum impact on our planet for the duration of the building’s lifetime.
ISO 14001 Certification
As part of our commitment to protecting the environment, Health Spaces has gained ISO 14001 certification, making sure our solutions comply with increasingly stringent environmental laws and regulations, as well as delivering on our promise of better healthcare, faster.
