TAH Construction & Property development
To make buildings sustainable, we design for better performance from every angle.
At TAH, we consider how all elements of a building’s design work together to meet the needs of its owners, occupants and environment.
We believe that it is only by considering the total building design that we can create buildings that are efficient with resources, affordable to build and operate, good to inhabit and appropriate to their context.
We have long promoted sustainable solutions through integrated thinking by bringing together all the building designers
and technical specialists
needed to shape a new building or retrofit
an existing building.
We have helped many clients realise their sustainability aspirations in buildings that achieve ratings under systems including
As in bream, TAH’s own assessment lends support by measuring sustainability against a wide range of parameters, and graphically showing before and after scenarios for proposed projects.

TAH ’s design strategy for sustainable buildings
Our strategy rests on six objectives, covering carbon, water, materials, climate change, community and the environment, and operations. We measure all projects against an absolute ideal in each category. So, for carbon the ideal is for all of our projects to be carbon neutral
in operation over a yearly cycle.
At the start of each project, client and design team set a strategy that allows them to design their project using these six objectives. We help clients find pragmatic solutions that match their own goals. But by setting a high bar for design team.
