Green energy Building Design Guides

All our work depends on energy, but using energy causes environmental pollution, climate change and costs us millions of pounds every year. We're committed to generating half of our energy from renewable and cleaner energy sources by 2020.

Find out about some of our Energy projects in a little more detail with these case studies.
