Environment & Sustainability

HBP undertakes to clearly and concisely advise clients on environmental aspects of their projects and help find cost-effective solutions to potential problems. In addition to the physical environment and its protection, HBP goes to great lengths to ensure that our operations and our personnel respect and are sensitive to all aspects of the communities, cultures, languages and religious beliefs of the countries in which we operate. HBP strives to adapt to the local environment in order to minimise the impact of our work on local residents and their environment. We encourage direct discussion with the local communities affected by our work and endeavour to address their concerns.

Sustainable design

Sustainable design is simply good design. From architecture through to all engineering disciplines HBP’s design teams are committed to delivering optimised environmental solutions for the buildings we design and manage. Throughout the design process HBP recommends bench marking projects against relevant standards and can offer design to meet formal certification against recognised rating systems such as LEED and Lotus among others.
