Sustainability & Awards
Our structural engineering teams have a strong track record of working with leading architectural practices and valued clients on prestigious developments of schools and colleges; sport centres; retail stores; historic buildings; bridges; multi-storey office complexes; community centres; hospitals; airport terminals, residential developments, distribution warehouses and industrial buildings.
Whatever the size and function of the building, we adopt a rigorous approach structured to obtain the best designs for foundations, frames, floors, walls and roofs in all construction materials.
By forming good working relationships at an early stage of a project, the extensive pool of experience within our structures teams ensures that our designs not only meet the brief but also add value by responding to market needs and evolving construction technology.
Our structural design teams ensure that projects are delivered with the highest levels of inherent affordable sustainability, using standards and practices such as BREEAM, Code for Sustainable Homes, Eco Homes and SUDS. We embed sustainability into our designs and work with architects and all the project design team to create sustainable buildings. Our in-house BREEAM/Code for Sustainable Homes assessors and BREEAM Accredited Professionals can guide you through the process and help you gain valuable points towards a BREEAM accreditation. Hydrock was selected by the Homes and Communities Agency to feature in their document the Code for Sustainable Homes, Case Studies.
