By 2018. £165 billion of UK commercial property with an EPC rating of F or G will require improvements to comply with regulations for sales and lettings. With the increasing pressures and growing concerns from local government, the expectation on both tenants and landlords to pay close attention to how your properties operate from a sustainability perspective has increased. The significant demand created by rising legislative triggers means that regulation is playing a bigger part in the decision-making process and ultimately becoming a fundamental overhead and business driver.
We can help occupiers to meet their sustainability targets and also help landlords to make their buildings more efficient. We will work with you to generate a return from the project, and, at the same time, improve the built environment. We will do this through the planning process, improving sustainability credentials, and future-proofing your building against changing legislations.
At SHW, we accept our own responsibilities and impacts on the environment and achieved accreditation to the British Standard ISO: 14001 in 2011. From our network of office across London and the South East, our Sustainability team offers all the advice you need to reduce risk, and ensure your property remains fit for purpose as a valuable asset.
