Institutional and Government funded projects more often than not include considerable budget constraints compared to privately funded developments. These constraints, plus security (AT/FP) and Health and Safety requirements, inherently reduce the potential for upfront investment and significantly increase the influence of short payback periods. However, the diverse programs and locations these builds offer encourage design and construction teams to explore opportunities to address site and climate specific challenges through affordable and often passive design techniques to achieve sustainable and energy efficient design. URS has successfully implemented this process on numerous projects.
Through project examples we will illustrate our multi-disciplinary approach to the successful implementation of sustainable and holistic strategies on several projects.
