Policies

Our vision is to improve the built environment, while improving its environmental impact. This will make a difference in the abatement of global warming and keep New Zealand a clean, green, beautiful country. This is embedded in the way we work via our principles and Environmental Policy.

Our Principles

  1. Design and Consultancy. We provide our customers with high-quality, effective solutions that have low environmental impact. In every project we will strive to find a cost-effective way of reducing resources and minimising emissions without compromise.
  2. Profitability. We believe in making a difference to New Zealand and this would be impossible without profitability and growth of the company. However our aim is not to become the biggest consultancy - just the best in what we do.
  3. People. We are committed to working together to achieve the goals laid out in this policy. Every employee brings their own individual ideas and passions to the projects we are involved in and the business as a whole.
  4. Environmental. We are continually seeking ways in which we can minimise our effect on the environment through our work and in our everyday lives. We bring environmental sustainability to every project and encourage the project teams and individuals we work with similarly.
  5. Ethical. We will not tolerate social injustice. We respect all of our colleagues, partners and clients, irrespective of race, gender, religion, sexuality, disability or health status.
  6. Equality. Everyone has a voice and is encouraged to contribute their thoughts. Our leaders are expected to act fast and effectively but listen and respect the views of everyone.
  7. Community. We consider social and cultural aspects in every project and seek solutions that bring people closer to each other and their surroundings.
  8. Partnership. We believe partnership is important in achieving our vision and actively seek collaboration with those who endeavour to develop and adapt. We will not do business with those who are opposed to change.
  9. Accountability. We will act ethically and effectively and be fully accountable for our actions. We will set clear targets which we will endeavour to meet.
  10. Passion. We are passionate about we do and determined to succedd in our mission.
