At S&T our mission is to minimise the impact that the built environment has on our natural terrain.

To do this, our Architects and Engineers work together to actively reduce the reliance on non-sustainable resources and undertake environmentally sensitive and responsible design in relation to sustainable design initiatives. The end effect is an integrated design solution that will deliver buildings with a lower environmental impact and enhance health, productivity, community and quality of life.

Sustainability is a very wide ranging and complex area of design expertise. With new materials, products and systems continuously being released, it is important that as an award winning practice we keep up with the latest innovation and developments.

S&T have created a number of sustainability categories with related icons to break down the field and provide a method for setting project goals and recording performance. The categories are listed below, complete with an explanation, aim and examples of strategies that we strive to include within our work.
