We, as architects, have a responsibility to minimise our buildings' impact on the environment...

We take sustainability very seriously and are committed to creating architecture with minimal environmental impact. Sustainability is fully integrated into our design process. We approach every new project as an opportunity to reduce energy consumption by making strategic decisions at the outset, utilising passive techniques, building orientation, building form and site location. Environmental technologies and materials specific to each project complement the passive techniques we adopt.

 

Wherever possible, we design with materials that have a minimal environmental impact and are very excited by the recent advances in structural timber technologies. We are engaged in a number of research projects to encourage and develop these advanced timber construction systems. Construction accounts for 47% of the world’s CO2 emissions. We, as architects, are responsible for minimising our buildings' environmental impact by developing structures with passive design strategies, specifying materials with low embodied energy and moving away from fossil fuel energy. These three actions will lead us towards carbon-neutral developments. Faber Architecture are adopters of the Architecture 2030 and UK Architects Declare Initiatives to ensure all new buildings, developments, and major renovations are carbon-neutral by the year 2030.
