Sustainability Assessments

Waterman’s sustainability team offers strategic direction to projects of all sizes, from a single building to strategic regeneration projects, ensuring that all aspects of sustainability are investigated and incorporated within the design process.

We believe the key to achieving sustainability targets is to work as an integrated member of the design team. This approach engages with the design team to provide clear guidance from feasibility stage, through detailed design as well as construction and operational aspects.

Waterman provides sustainability services to support strategic master planning projects, including constraints and opportunities analysis, options appraisal and preparation of sustainability strategies and route maps, as well a full range of technical studies to support the feasibility studies and design process. We have developed tools to support the master planning process, which will enable the completed project to not only meet the best practice sustainability standards of today, but to also ensure there is a framework to future proof the proposals to enable the development to meet the sustainability standards of tomorrow. We have worked on a number of proposals for zero carbon mixed use schemes and new sustainable communities.

We are able to guide project teams throughout the design process to maximise the sustainability of a scheme, using innovation whilst delivering commercial solutions. We have an in-depth knowledge of the planning system and prepare tailored sustainability reports for submission with outline or detailed planning applications which ensure a smooth path through the planning process.

Our service offer provides a full suite of technical expertise and modelling capabilities, enabling us to support all aspects of sustainability from concept to occupation. Such assessments incorporate the findings of wider technical studies which can also be provided by Waterman, including Energy Statements and Renewable Energy Feasibility Studies, Ecology Studies, Sustainable Drainage Strategies, Waste Strategies and Travel Plans. We also have a full complement of Building Assessment Methodology assessors to support scheme designs.

Waterman has a depth of experience providing sustainability services on all types of projects. Our track record includes all sectors such as; commercial, residential, mixed use urban regeneration projects, heathcare to more bespoke projects such as museums and laboratories. We have worked on a number of award winning sustainable buildings such as Watermark Place and Chelsea Academy.
