Structural engineering has an important part to play in sustainable development and the conservation of the Earth’s resources, in order to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.
As a structural consultant MHA actively promotes sustainable solutions for the building industry through specifying sustainable materials and the use of environment-friendly methods of construction, where applicable. By considering the generation of waste and in discussion with the client, the value of waste management can be brought into the design & procurement strategy from the outset. We maintain research into sustainable products and support their application where appropriate.
MHA aims to ensure that any new building or refurbishment takes the widest possible consideration of its environmental impact, and in particular, is planned and carried out to try to maximize the overall energy efficiency. An important criterion for selection of the construction materials we use is sustainability with the intent to minimise the environmental impact of construction.
