Sustainability / Climate
NHA are signatories to Architects Declare and to the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge.
Concern for the environment has always been a central strand of our guiding philosophy. It is part of our identity.
A dedicated in-house group ensures that our knowledge remains at the cutting edge: researching new ideas and evaluating them critically. The team keeps up to date our Environmental Roadmap which guides our own practice - minimising the environmental impact of our studio as well as our designs. Group members participate in our design reviews and help teams with our environmental modelling software. They also manage a vibrant programme of NHA seminars and events that continually enrich and deepen our understanding of sustainability.
The group is led by one of our associates, David Tompson who is also a BREEAM accredited professional.
