Chapman Taylor marks Earth Day with new Environmental Design Guide and Insight paper

To mark this year's Earth Day, Chapman Taylor has published a new Environmental Design Guide and a new Insight paper by Sustainability Group member Eleanor Maclure.

Creating sustainable architecture relies on maintaining awareness of current research and guidance in order to make informed decisions and create viable solutions. Chapman Taylor’s in-house Sustainability Group was set up to improve awareness and knowledge of good sustainable design across our UK and international studios – with a focus on preserving and enhancing the environments in which our designs sit.

To that end, it has published a new Environmental Design Guide outlining the key environmental responsibility goals that should be met in any development, no matter in which sector. Eleanor's Insight paper summarises key points covered in the guide.

The guide outlines a best-practice approach to urban design, retail, residential, offices and renewables - covering sustainability as a general theme, fundamental principles and factors for consideration. Each section is supported by statistics that underline the need for placing sustainability front and centre of the design and construction processes.

As creative and sustainability-conscious designers, Chapman Taylor's common sense approach is to maximise the efficiency of a scheme while striving to minimise its environmental impact. We seek to create developments which are commercially realistic yet environmentally responsible.
