• Sustainable Masterplanning


    Truly sustainable development cannot occur in isolation. The needs of people, transport, buildings, infrastructure and the environment require careful consideration during the design process. It is now necessary for developers to set out the sustainability features of their development proposals as part of planning applications.

    Hilson Moran assists in developing and demonstrating the sustainability features of building schemes. Our Sustainability Assessment Tool allows development options to be scored and ranked to identify the optimal solution and demonstrate compliance with local, regional and national sustainability policy.

    The tool includes the following areas:
    • Climate change and energy
    • Land use
    • Transport
    • Ecology
    • Materials and waste
    • Community cohesion
    • Community facilities
    • Property type and tenure
    • Employment
