For the first time in history, more than half the planet makes its home in cities. By 2030, an estimated two thirds of us will. It’s through cities that the built environment allows communities to come together to share experiences, exchange capital, goods and ideas, and where we build our most ambitious and symbolic structures.

As models of exhibiting characteristics such as connectivity, adaptability, decisiveness and experimentation, cities provide numerous lessons on how to advance the sustainability agenda both within and beyond the city.

In this ‘decade of change’, the convergence of social progress and environmental degradation is ever challenging our approach to design. Shaping a healthier, zero carbon future through our building and infrastructure projects has never been more important.

Our sustainable design expertise values all aspects of sustainability to ensure our projects are high performing and resilient across their life cycle, minimise natural resources, are healthy and safe for people; and create a sense of belonging and purpose.
