Trident has adopted a proactive approach to sustainable development. By achieving carbon neutral status for our own business, we understand what’s needed on the journey to improve the most efficient use of resources including staff, travel, water and energy.
However we recognise that our main impact on the community and future generations is through the building and development projects we design and manage for our clients.
Therefore, we have achieved accreditation under ISO 14001 and have adopted procedures to assist our clients in realising key environmental objectives such as:
- Minimising any negative environmental or social impact of a project through careful development of the design
- Ensuring the appropriate selection of materials
- Promoting effective waste management of every project.
Unless a client instructs otherwise, Trident’s normal default is to work towards achieving a minimum BREEAM rating of Very Good for newbuild projects, or a Ska Silver rating for office refurbishment and fit out projects.
In addition, our design team members ensure that all products and materials are obtained from the BRE’s Guide to Specification and all specifications will include requirement for a waste management plan.
We consider these practical measures to enable Trident and its clients to produce environmentally friendly and energy efficient buildings.
