Low Energy Design & Carbon Management

We offer a sustainability consultancy service, The Carbon Surgery, which helps to assess, control and reduce carbon emissions through improved building performance, especially for organisations with large estates such as hospitals, schools and universities. For further details please refer to our brochure – The Carbon Surgery .

Energy-efficient design also forms part of our core architectural service, following a strategic fabric-first approach to ensure that energy-efficiency underpins the design from concept through to detailed design. We use environmental modelling tools such as Sefaira to ensure that we have comparative data to inform our design processes and our highly-trained staff include BREEAM Accredited Professionals.

Avanti Architects’ Environmental Management System is registered under ISO14001:2015 and is closely aligned with our Quality Management Systems as defined under ISO9001:2015. Our activities are broken down into individual workstreams and programmes which are regularly reviewed by our Sustainability Group. These are broadly divided into internal and wider project based activities, ensuring our own impacts are minimised and the buildings we design achieve ambitious environmental targets. Our commitment to sustainable architecture and the environment is reflected in a number of awards and exemplar projects.

Avanti Architects are signatories to Architects Declare and are committed to meeting the urgent demands imposed on us by the Climate and Biodiversity Emergency through our work as designers and architects. We have also published a current Carbon Reduction Plan – follow the link below to read the plan in full:
