Sustainability

At JRA we believe that good design is sustainable design. Our approach to sustainability is firmly based on pragmatic and holistic thinking. These principles lie at the core of our ethos which ensures that we design and deliver robust and adaptable solutions. We add value for our clients, going beyond the requirements of legislation and planning aspirations alone.

JRA is an ISO14001 accredited practice and our Environmental Policy can be found here. We have an enthusiastic in-house sustainability team who keep the practice up to date with current global and regional trends via Continued Professional Development and internal newsletters. Our team has taken on the One Planet Living challenge framework both at practice and individual level, demonstrating that sustainability is inherent in not only what we do, but also in how we live. Our current areas of research interest include designing for health and well-being, whole life carbon and life cycle analysis among others. JRA aspires to provide thought leadership and contribute to inter-disciplinary collaboration on these subjects. JRA is an active member of the UK Green Building Council.
