KSR addresses sustainability with design that balances quality, energy efficiency and cost effectiveness at all stages of the project, while maintaining a high level of design and timeless aesthetics.
We work closely with our clients, consultants and relevant professionals to implement sustainable design on a wide range of projects; from private residential to urban master planning. Our approach is tailored to each project, focusing on the social, economic and environmental needs to create productive, healthy environments that will have a long-lasting impact on present and future generations.
As members of the Green Register, we are constantly improving our knowledge by regularly attending seminars, conferences and workshops. Our in-house sustainability research group ensures KSR is up-to-date with the latest developments in material technology and green architecture.
KSR maintains four key principles of action:
Design: A fabric-first approach to achieve high performance envelopes that combined with a thorough detailing provide more efficient buildings.
Materials: Reduce the construction impact by sourcing and specifying sustainable materials and promoting the use of recycled and recyclable materials. Implement life cycle and waste controls.
Technology: Collaborate with consultants to provide energy efficient systems that, along with the usage of renewable energy sources in our designs, deliver low-energy, healthy, sustainable buildings.
Social impact: Promote a healthy lifestyle, minimise our travel carbon footprint, and reduce our waste and energy usage in the work place.
