Sheppard Robson: AJ100 Most Sustainable Practice

Sheppard Robson participated in beta-testing for CarbonBuzz and has measured its own carbon footprint since 2004

Sponsored by InterfaceFLOR

Sheppard Robson’s designated sustainability group, SR:Evolution, founded in 2000, currently numbers 14 people. They participate in project design at three stages: at the outset, to agree sustainability objectives with the client; during the design stage to prioritise a project’s social, economic and environmental aspects; and post-occupancy, to benchmark the building’s performance. The practice has completed five BREEAM Excellent-rated buildings in the past year. Sheppard Robson was also a founding partner of SKA Rating, a recently launched environmental measurement tool for interior fit-outs, and participated in beta-testing for CarbonBuzz, the RIBA/CIBSE online tool for post-occupancy energy monitoring. The practice has measured its own carbon footprint since 2004


Practices were asked to show how they address issues of sustainability, and to nominate a sustainable project they completed in 2008
