The connection between social, environmental and economic value lies at the heart of the Lipton Rogers development philosophy. The founding partners have a strong background in successful place making and development, as well as sustainability. Stuart Lipton and Peter Rogers supported the start-up of BREEAM with the Building Research Establishment, and subsequently the creation of the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC), of which Peter Rogers was Founder Chairman for eight years.
Lipton Rogers believes in the positive contribution a development can bring to its surroundings, creating community and enhancing civic life, while being rooted in solid financial decisions. Inherent sustainability means delivering responsible buildings that are places in which people will want to live, work and play, and which will endure.
Building with energy efficiency in mind not only benefits future generations but makes firm business sense today, and it is one of the prime considerations of occupiers. Reduced carbon emissions and running costs benefit everyone, from developer to tenant. Lipton Rogers pursues this agenda through the design of buildings which are efficient and robust, and which push at the technological boundaries of design, enhance and support local communities, and place sustainability at a premium.
Preferred sites are locations adjacent to public transport to minimise car use, particularly brownfield sites.
Lipton Rogers is committed to innovative design that incorporates tight building envelopes, natural lighting and ventilation, energy efficient systems and fixtures, waste reduction, responsible material use and resourcing. All of these things are good for the environment, good for business and good for our communities and our future.
Creating sustainable, enduring and valuable places is a commitment at the core of Lipton Rogers.
