Er ... Code for Sustainable Homes anyone?
I spoke to the Project Manager on this procurement competition. There are 500 words only allocated to address 'quality'. When pressed I was told that it would be adequate to say in what way you have worked on environmentally sensitive sites. Basically they are seeking an architect who has 'done it before'- so lowering risk- and the cheapest. There is no indication at all that this client has any interest in quality. Sad that ambition on such important sites is zero.
