Using innovation to drive our actions and create inspirational places

The next few years will herald a critical change in the way we plan, design and construct places. The buildings we create now will be enduring; at the same time, the long-term success of a building will depend on its ability to satisfy user needs, cope with changing climatic conditions and survive the evolving expectations of society. A clear trend is emerging for tenants searching for smart, high-performing buildings with strong green credentials.

The sector must push itself to find answers to these big questions so it can create places that leave a positive legacy for generations to come. How do we deliver low and zero-carbon buildings? How do we make the places where we live and work outstanding and fit for future generations?
