The Footprint Company (TFC) provided guidance to leading architecture firm Foster + Partners in achieving specific sustainability objectives in their projects.
A reputed architectural practice with iconic projects such as the Apple Campus, Central Courtyard of British Museum and the iconic Gherkin, Foster + Partners (F+P) is committed to leveraging their knowledge to creatively devise integrated sustainable solutions and provide thought leadership.
The Sustainability Group at F+P acts as a catalyst, working directly with design teams to find ways to advance the firm’s sustainable design processes. It delivers insight, informs direction, and measures improvements, to develop a sustainable vision for projects carried out by the practice.
F+P engaged with The Footprint Company to trial the ecological footprint software on selected projects and establish the engagement and utility of the platform to meet their vision. Following the successful trial, the practice has adopted an enterprise licence to TFC’s The Footprint Calculator software platform. The trial presented an opportunity to show the flexibility and adaptability of the system to a variety of project locations, scale and application.
TFC’s guidance in conjunction with The Footprint Calculator is supporting F+P in their aspiration to consistently deliver leadership in sustainable design at all scales.
