      Sustainable Buildings and Places

      Hitting Net Zero is the most urgent challenge facing developers and investors today. We’ll help you deliver sustainable - and profitable - buildings and places by making sense of your options.

      Sustainability is about more than simply reducing your carbon footprint. Your next real estate project must be a well-governed and socially sustainable investment too.

      Staying ahead of the fast-changing world of sustainable buildings means taking an ambitious but flexible approach to real estate investing and development. The decisions you make today will impact the future of the planet and your portfolio.

      With the demands of occupiers shifting as fast as the world around us, we’ll help you to coordinate the array of specialist technical expertise and market knowledge you need to provide value in the long term.  

      Delivering sustainable buildings and places can mean taking tough decisions. Having a sustainability strategy for your asset or planning application is no longer a nice-to-have, its where the value lies. 



      We can help you reutilise the embedded carbon in your assets so you can improve the emissions from your existing estate and protect your historic properties.

      Social Value

      Delivering social value through developments is now required by updated compliance and policy, and by society more generally. This means a more sustainable and clearly articulated development resulting in a more valuable and marketable product and is something we are passionate about at Bidwells.
