Simpson & Brown takes a holistic approach to sustainable building design, aiming to; reduce energy consumption and utilise renewable technologies; minimise pollution; use natural, unprocessed, locally sourced materials, and to create environments which are healthy and life enhancing.

Taking a proactive approach Simpson & Brown integrates sustainable desing at an early stage. This is done in collaboration with the client, informing the briefing stage as sustainable design is not just about the construction but the long term use and operation of the building.

Simpson & Brown has considerable expertise within the practice; several members of the staff are active members of the Scottish Ecological Design Association, and Jenny Humphreys is accredited under the RIAS scheme for Sustainable Design.  We have received particular recognition for the following projects;  Scottish Seabird Centre: RICS Commendation for Sustainability, Morgan Academy, Dundee: Green Apple Gold Award for the Built Environment.
