Sustainability

Sustainability is at the heart of all the design and project work that Urban Design is involved in. The Sustainability and Energy Management team are at the forefront of the Council's provision of sustainable solutions in both design and strategies delivering a service to monitor and identify new opportunities to balance economic, social and environmental factors for positive benefit.



Urban Design has pioneered new schemes such as Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and the internal energy awareness campaign Energy Smart. The team has also set up an Energy Saving Fund, and invested in research and development for new areas such as waste management and local sourcing, championing the cause of accessible sustainability in new and existing public buildings across the West Midlands.
