At QODA, we believe sustainability is at the heart of what we do and appropriate use of technology minimises our impact on the environment.
We live on a small planet with finite resources and the decisions we take can have implications all around the globe. For today’s building design consultants, a keen understanding of sustainability is essential and we ensure this is an integral part of our service.
With every project we work on, we strive to balance the need to create a building that meets all our client’s expectations with the challenge of reducing the environmental impact of its construction and operation.
To demonstrate our ongoing commitment in this vital area, our team includes credited Low Carbon Consultants and Low Carbon Energy Assessors and we will continue to invest in employees who can enhance our reputation as a designer of highly sustainable buildings.
