Sustainability is at the forefront of all ACOR design and engineering solutions. ACOR consults with clients to gain an understanding of the project’s Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) requirements in order to provide a tailored approach, with incorporating sustainability initiatives throughout the design and construction phases.

The main aim of sustainable design in a project is to reduce energy, water, and materials usage, minimise waste, increase the longevity of a building’s life cycle and create a built environment which is accessible, safe and healthy for occupants.

ACOR’s role is to facilitate embedding sustainable initiatives across all aspects of project and services offered, where sustainability initiatives are at the forefront to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet net zero carbon targets by 2050.
