“As a business, we are committed to minimising our impact on the environment and, as a consultancy, supporting our clients to do the same, creating a sustainable future for everyone.”
PBC’s Approach to Sustainability
Our business has been Carbon Neutral since 2020, and we are accredited with ISO 14001 for our environmentally responsible working ethos. We maintain eco-friendly practices in the office and on-site to minimise environmental impact.
We are a Solution-Based Consultancy
Our Building Consultancy, Project Management and Cost Consultancy teams offer reliable advice on the most suitable methods of enhancing the built environment for our clients, thus contributing to the well-being of stakeholders and wider communities, and future-proofing properties against climate change, improving energy efficiency and supporting net-zero goals.
Sustainability is a central pillar of our business, and we are helping to make the Net Zero transition happen. As sustainability technologies can reduce costs, boost health, improve quality of life, create value, and help us ‘build back better’ in every sense, we advise our clients for the life of their assets, from acquisition, in operation and through projects large and small.
We introduce our clients to specialist consultants who can support them and their teams in achieving goals, which often include elevating the EPC rating of their property and targeting NABERS, BREEAM, Fitwell, WELL, SKA or LEED accreditation for their projects. This supports and enhances the sustainability credentials of the client’s assets and improves occupier attraction and long-term asset value.
Sustainability is integral to our practice, and we undertake many exciting projects with sustainability as a core objective, which requires the innovation and vision of our expert teams Building Surveyors, Project Managers, Cost Managers and Development Monitors.
Sustainability credentials are not just badges of honour; they are tools that empower professionals to lead the charge toward a greener, more sustainable future. As construction projects become increasingly complex and environmentally conscious, the value of these credentials will only continue to rise. Building sustainably is not an option but an imperative, and, as project and building consultancy professionals, we are poised to make it a reality.
