FOSTER + PARTNERS
Foster + Partners is one of the pre-eminent architectural practices globally with such iconic projects as Apple Campus, Central Courtyard of British Museum and the iconic Gherkin (30 St. Mary Axe). F+P have a deep heritage and commitment to leverage their knowledge to creatively devise integrated sustainable solutions and thought leadership.
The Sustainability Group acts as a catalyst, finding ways to advance sustainable design processes and thought leadership. They believe that the ecological footprint and its measure of planets supports their goal of providing insightful and easy to understand direction with measurable outcomes. As such, F+P sought engaged with The Footprint Company to trial the ecological footprint software on selected projects to establish the engagement and utility of the platform and support to meet their vision. The trial proved successful and the practice have adopted an enterprise licence to The Footprint Calculator software platform and are continuing to expand their applications. Through trial, they have shown the flexibility and adaptability of the system to a variety of project locations, scale and application.
