Our versatile retrofit services ensure your assets are optimised for modern-day use whilst putting sustainability at the forefront to generate maximum impact for years to come.
By assessing, researching and providing solutions to take you from a strategy report through to a retrofit, we ensure you continue to protect and restore your building fabric safely and sustainably.
Updated client policy surrounding the environmental impact of buildings has championed a shift in priority for developers, with sustainability now high on the agenda. We can help you navigate retrofitting your assets; renewing buildings to encompass sustainability accreditations through a flexible approach of assessing specific requirements for your building.
With trusted input from the outset, we will take the time to test and challenge the brief and work with you to define and shape the core objectives. We will consider the end users, cost, disruption, programme, risk and opportunity.
With expertise across a vast range of asset types, we can deliver retrofits in many different forms, whether that be within a historic estate or tired building. We problem solve to provide the impetus to challenge assets which would have once been left redundant.
With sustainability across developments now measurable, we will guide you to take the next steps in future-proofing your building, preserving and extending the lifespan of your assets.
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.
The development industry has a huge role to play in the essential work of climate change and creating sustainable communities. Through master planning and urban design, you can make well-informed decisions now to contribute to hitting net zero carbon by 2050.
Net Zero Portfolio Strategy
We need to think big and think combined to bring together all elements of sustainability to reach our targets. There is no single solution.
Specification of materials
With sustainability policies moving so fast selecting the right goods, materials and services for your project can feel like trying to hit a moving target.
Carbon lifecycle analysis
Carbon is emitted by a building when it's built, used, demolished and disposed of but materials have their own carbon life too. We’ll help you understand the past, present and future of your assets.
Biodiversity Net Gain
Having a credible biodiversity plan for your scheme is becoming integral to securing planning permission and maximising end values.
The local planning authorities across Norfolk have been impacted by guidance issued by Natural England in relation to the impact of increased nutrient loads on protected habitat sites.
Environmental Impact Assessments
Adding value to minimise the environmental impact of your development or infrastructure projects from the outset and ensuring compliance with the legislative requirements of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
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.
Stranded Assets Assessments Strategy
With the sustainability agenda moving at pace, ensuring your property assets don’t get left high and dry is becoming an integral part of portfolio assessments.
