We recognised that the majority of sustainability impacts arising from construction occur during a building’s occupation. We therefore work closely with our customers to understand their aspirations in this area and deliver tailored and innovative solutions.
Site appropriate mechanisms to link residential developments to the local area and promote low carbon forms of travel are considered as part of our planning process. For example the Brook House development in Tottenham has been specifically designed with streetscapes that encourage community interaction. 70% of our developments are based within 1000m of a major transport node (51% are within 500m), and 13% of our sites with more than 100 homes have a car club.
