Stace proud to support Living in a Low Carbon World

01 April 2008

Yesterday (17 April 2008) saw the second Living in a Low Carbon World conference hosted by the Sustainable Environment Foundation, which provided delegates with an opportunity to hear the most up-to-date thoughts on policies and practices across a range of vital sustainability topics.

The Sustainable Environment Foundation, headed by Founder and Chief Executive Adrian Wyatt, OBE of Quintain Estates, aim to significantly reduce the role of the built environment in climate change, which they believe requires a radical change of thinking.

One of the foremost annual events on climate change, the one day conference addressed issues surrounding sustainable development, providing the opportunity to debate the challenges faced by businesses, communities and the government with the hope of sharing solutions.

Sustainability is an ever-increasingly important issue for Stace, having recently introduced new initiatives into their design team workshops to support sustainable design solutions.

Stace Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors work with design consultants to produce life cycle cost analysis against construction costs and energy consumption.

Recent innovative solutions include:

  • NVAC recycling at Wembley City, in conjunction with Quintain Estates and Development
  • Open loop ATES system, Westminster City College
  • Very good BREEAM rating for Ipswich Borough Council Headquarters, which additionally won the BCO regional award in 2007 for Corporate Workplace; The Midlands and East Anglia

Stace continue to challenge and innovate with their consultant partners in providing sustainable solutions and are proud to have supported the Low Carbon World conference.
