Decarbonising public sector buildings to help achieve net zero
As the climate change crisis continues to accelerate, and with an estimated 40% of the UK’s emissions coming from households, it’s clear we must adapt the way we live to reduce our carbon footprint.
Public sector bodies have been given zero-carbon targets to help reach net zero by 2050. But with some 300,000 public properties contributing 3% of all carbon emissions in the UK, in many cases this will mean retrofitting whole buildings - even estates - to ensure they’re energy-efficient. Such scale of work requires additional expertise, skills and resource capacity.
Our experienced property specialists can help, providing advice, planning and business case submission on energy efficiency measures across your buildings and social housing. We work side by side with your teams, applying advanced data analytics skills and funding knowledge alongside construction and building surveying expertise to deliver the best value to you.
Wherever you are on your decarbonisation journey, we can help - each stage of our approach can be provided in isolation or as part of a ‘one stop shop’ package to support you throughout your journey.

Helping local authorities to realise energy efficiency programmes
Our decarbonisation planning and support is already making a positive impact. We’ve helped Blackburn with Darwen Council to secure funding and planning permission for schemes that will reduce the carbon footprint and electricity bills of 23 council buildings through the installation of sustainable power and heating technologies. These projects will reduce emissions from the council’s estate by around 5% and we are helping to make sure they are delivered on time and on budget.
£2.5 million funding secured for the decarbonisation of Blackburn Council’s public estate
Our decarbonisation plans with Blackburn with Darwen Council have saved 2.5m kWh, 307 tCO2e and £259,000 in energy bills each year
We’re also working with other local authorities, including Flintshire County Council, to decarbonise their social housing estates - ranging from existing housing stock to setting the baseline for new build housing projects.
