We do the right thing for the environment – while making sure we deliver real value to our clients.

Sustainable Engineering

Making a building sustainable and energy efficient is great for the environment. But when you work with CBRE, it creates financial value too. We work with clients to get a great return from their project – at the same time as helping improve the built environment.

We help you navigate the planning process, giving you clear, timely advice on energy conservation. And we make sure any wider sustainability objectives are addressed to secure planning consent.

We also improve the sustainability credentials of existing buildings, tackling key issues such as energy, water, waste, wellbeing and pollution. Which all make your properties even more marketable and valuable.

Always, we are looking to future-proof. So we keep a careful watch on changing legislation and trends, giving you the succinct information you need to get maximum value.

All of this gets tangible results – whether it’s a direct return on investment, happy occupiers or reducing the risk of your property falling into disuse.
