People are the heart of any enterprise and must be the focus of high performance building design

Sustainable Business Demands High Performance Buildings

People are the most important asset of any enterprise. High design quality in buildings and workspace improves both personal and business performance. Workspace environmental design can increase productivity and improve health whilst reducing absence and improving retention. High quality design can improve learning outcomes in schools and recovery times in hospitals.

High performance, sustainable buildings deliver these benefits whilst simultaneously minimising the consumption of energy and resources. They are more resilient, adaptable and, in changing times, hold their value better than conventional alternatives. Building occupants, owners, business and society all benefit from high performance, sustainable building design.

Changing the Construction Industry Paradigm

“Sustainability is not just about mitigating environmental impacts. Approached sensibly, sustainable design saves money and makes good business sense”

Doug King is an inspirational designer, enabler, innovator and problem solver. He works across the conventional disciplines to confront the performance gap: the difference in cost and outcome between what is anticipated in the brief, predicted in design and delivered at occupation.

In all his work, Doug also strives to enhance the expertise of his collaborators in all disciplines. Rather than simply delivering solutions developed in isolation, he freely shares his expertise, through the process of co-design, to help build the entire team’s capabilities for the future.
