Our built environment has a pivotal role with respect to the current Ecological Crisis. The industrialised nations must aim to achieve Sustainable Construction Industries as a matter of extreme urgency to help mitigate global warming, and the associated international economic and social turmoil. The Industry must move to producing affordable, adaptable, robust and healthy buildings in order to help us adapt our lives to the inevitable degree of climate change predicted. This is the context which defines Simmonds.Mills' work here in the UK.
The company's energy policy is now to work towards achieving the 'Silver', Passivhaus and 'Gold' energy targets outlined in the AECB's CarbonLite Energy Standards. See www.carbonlite.org.uk for details.
