Architects Declare

Architects Declare

We're passionate about sustainable design and have signed the Architects Declare open letter, declaring a climate and biodiversity emergency and committing to making changes to ensure our industry has a more positive impact on our planet.

We will seek to:

- Raise awareness of the climate and biodiversity emergencies and the urgent need for action amongst our clients and supply chains.

- Advocate for faster change in our industry towards regenerative design practices and a higher Governmental funding priority to support this.

- Establish climate and biodiversity mitigation principles as the key measure of our industry’s success: demonstrated through awards, prizes and listings.

- Share knowledge and research to that end on an open source basis.

- Evaluate all new projects against the aspiration to contribute positively to mitigating climate breakdown, and encourage our clients to adopt this approach.

- Upgrade existing buildings for extended use as a more carbon efficient alternative to demolition and new build whenever there is a viable choice.

- Include life cycle costing, whole life carbon modelling and post occupancy evaluation as part of our basic scope of work, to reduce both embodied and operational resource use.

- Adopt more regenerative design principles in our studios, with the aim of designing architecture and urbanism that goes beyond the standard of net zero carbon in use.

- Collaborate with engineers, contractors and clients to further reduce construction waste.

- Accelerate the shift to low embodied carbon materials in all our work.

- Minimise wasteful use of resources in architecture and urban planning, both in quantum and in detail.
