Environmentally Sustainable Design


The delivery of environmentally responsible and sustainable design solutions is of up most importance when creating public spaces. Designs should strive to develop solutions that retain and enhance environmental features and embrace and enhance the environmental systems into which we are developing. Protection and strengthening of endemic vegetation, as well as fostering the protection of existing ecosystems within design solutions, will enhance the sustainability and sense of place within the development. Water retention and water quality design solutions should be implemented to ensure the effects of any development are limited, sustainable and enhance the surrounding environment.
