St William is a responsible developer and strongly committed to creating sustainable places to live, work and enjoy. We seek to maximise the benefits our activities will bring to create a positive impact for surrounding communities.
Our approach to meeting sustainability standards on site will be exemplary. St William is part of the Berkeley Group, which is proud to have been named Sustainable Housebuilder of the Year at the Housebuilder Awards for the last two years, and is among the first businesses globally to adopt Science-Based Targets to align with the international effort to limit global warming to 1.5 C above pre-industrial levels.
Our approach will also include making use of prefabricated elements and minimising construction waste. Across all of our sites we divert 95% of construction waste from landfill.
We will work hard to ensure that our proposals positively impact the biodiversity of the site and its surroundings, maximising the development’s biodiversity net gain and urban greening factor.
As part of the planning process we will also produce a Sustainability Statement that will focus on our approach in more detail.
