At Goodson Associates, we are committed to protecting the environment and promoting sustainability. We work with the client and the design team from site assessment to project completion to limit any environmental impacts and create cost-effective sustainable developments.

We are committed to current government actions to reduce waste and are a signatory to the “Halving Waste to Landfill” commitment developed by WRAP and Zero Waste Scotland.

We have senior staff trained as CEEQUAL assessors. This allows us to formally assess the environmental impact of infrastructure developments.

We have been involved in a number of urban regeneration projects building homes and creating employment on brownfield sites.

We create environmentally-friendly and sustainable projects through our considered approach to design. We are mindful of the undernoted considerations on all projects:

  • Economic design (saves on materials and cost)
  • Material choice for the building frames, particularly with regard to recycled content
  • 3D modelling to minimise cut & fill volumes
  • Assessment of existing structures for their suitability for re-use
  • Remediation proposals for contaminated or unsuitable ground
  • Advanced timber design
  • Design of sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS)

We strive to keep our staff up to date with regards to best practice for both environmental and sustainable solutions.
