Sustainability: Our Environmental Responsibility

Sustainability is at the centre of an important movement concerning the whole construction industry. The sustainability regulations have been progressively established between various people working in construction, the environment and public services in order to integrate the principals of sustainable development across all of the activities linked to conception, construction, function and maintenance of a building. 

Respecting the environment - the criteria at the heart of a good project

Reid Brewin Architects have always integrated into their projects criteria which are now covered under the term "Sustainability". The practice promotes the themes of durable development at the heart of all of their projects. We try to reconcile economic, social and environmental aspects of human activity to maximise the efficiency of resources used (water, energy, and construction materials), to reduce the overall impact on the environment and to find a coherent, long term balance between these three factors.

We strongly believe that architects have a central role to play in the conception of projects by responding to the goals of sustainability. This naturally promotes good practice by making us aware of the importance that the statutory regulations and codes of conduct have to play in achieving excellence. 

Analysis of the environmental factors impacting the project.

Each of our projects is based on thorough analysis of the environment in which our proposal will sit. We take into account the orientation, the surroundings, energy requirements, water management, biodiversity, air quality, temperature, acoustics and usage of local materials. 

HQE - Haute Qualité Environnementale

The reference HQE is a brand owned by the HQE Association. It is used to certify a project management approach that controls the impact of a building on the environment as well as the comfort and health of the occupants.


The first part of the HQE system is the EMS or Environmental Management System. It defines the management system to be adopted by an owner who wishes to obtain, maintain or improve the environmental quality of the building (QEB) that is to be built, managed or adapted.


The second document of the HQE approach is the QEB. It corresponds to the characteristics of the building, its equipment (products and services) and the rest of the site on which it's built and its ability to meet the needs of controlling the impact on the external environment and creating a comfortable and healthy indoor environment.
