Sustainable design

PTE won AJ Sustainable Practice 2018 because we have embedded sustainable design into everything we do, delivering practical energy efficient buildings at scale, rather than one-off exemplars.

We promote a ‘fabric first’ approach to low energy design, minimising reliance on costly or complex technologies, and increasingly our new homes achieve passivhaus or zero carbon standards.
