The aim of the RCZM Project Eco-system is to improve quality of life and wellbeing through a decarbonised society of innovation and empowerment with consistent long term ripple effects. The sustainability strategy is brought to fruition by wrapping the three pillars of sustainability through;

Soft Landings

The RIBA Plan of Works

Building Information Managemnent (BIM), Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and Life Cycle Analysis(LCA)

RCZM's supporting analytical services

Software tools

In summary
We live within a total system which economic growth is at the expense of the social and environmental, such that consumption is an afterthought in adressing the Social, Economic and Environmental triple bottom line. The project eco-system brings together holistic development principles to ensure all elements of sustainable development are identified and considered through out the delivery and occupancy process is sustaining a balanced triple bottom line.
