Environmental Sustainability

db symmetry recognise the essential role of the built environment in delivering sustainable development, we understand and embrace the need to have a positive impact on the environment. We therefore adopt a holistic approach to creating energy efficient buildings, sensitive to the climate and environment. We believe that the approach to sustainable development must be tailored for every project to meet the needs of the client and the requirements of the project stakeholders.

In our opinion some of the most relevant definitions and objectives of sustainable development are incorporated in the following, the ethos of which we are committed to reflect in all new development:
