Re-Format implements an environmental checklist as part of the briefing process for all projects. Once we have established the commissioning aspirations of our clients we can advise on improvements from this baseline. We explain the environmental impact reductions that can be achieved through audit procedures such as BREEAM. On at least 50% of our projects we have facilitated an increase in the output brief by one increment such as increasing from BREEAM ‘good’ to ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’.
We share drawings, files and documents on a secure members’ area of this website, allowing all project team members access to individual projects thereby saving resources and costs.
Within our own studio we have introduced a series of strategies in our Environmental Action Plan in order to reduce our environmental impact in terms of reducing travel and energy consumption, and improving our recycling and waste management. We are committed to improving our own environmental impact.
