West 1, its senior management, consultants, sub-contractors and operatives fully appreciate and enforce the importance of sustainable working practices throughout the project life cycle.
Refurbishment projects are typically carried out under a time / cost pressured environment. It is these driving factors which can make it difficult to employ sustainability considerations. Whilst refurbishing existing stock and employing enhancements to a building are generally considered the most sustainable option to demolition and new build, the way the project is coordinated can largely undermine the sustainability benefits to be achieved.
With every project undertaken by West 1, sustainable methods and practices are embedded throughout the project life cycle, from inception through to completion. Sustainability however doesn���t just stop at Practical Completion, as West 1 continue to work with clients and end users alike, advising on new technology, which not only helps reduce energy consumption and increase asset value, but at the same time has a candid effect on our national dependence on fossil fuels.
