Green in Every Colour Scheme

Protecting the environment is very important to us, and so our philosophy is simple: put back more than we take out. When clients share this philosophy, we are in a strong position to integrate green design principles. Simple practices can go a long way in saving natural resources (and impacting bottom lines).

 

We contribute by

• Using recycled, recyclable & sustainable material

• Selecting locally produced materials

• Choosing energy reducing lighting, water heating & reticulation systems

• Maximising natural light

• Fitting water saving devices

• Installing insulating geysers & roofs

• Employing infrared technology to deactivate lights & air conditioners in unoccupied areas

• Exploring ways to generate electricity & harvest rainwater

• Recycling unwanted items into local disadvantaged communities

• Disposing waste materials responsibly

 

Our search for processes and materials which lessen dependence on energy and water is ongoing. We observe international environmental trends in our quest for intelligent specifications and then use local content to ensure installations benefit from diminishing long-term footprints.
