Our lifestyles, the climate, technology, politics, the environment and the economic landscape are constantly changing. Last year we were tackling Brexit, this year we’re working through the fallout of Covid-19 and in the future there’s the implementation of the Planning White Paper. Sometimes change happens to us, sometimes change happens because of us.
Wouldn’t it be useful if you had a dedicated adviser with a specific remit to understand the changing world and support you in driving and capitalising on that change? Well we thought the same too.
We’ve concentrated our expertise in technology, sustainable development and planning into our very own ‘Q-branch’ which we’ve aptly named – Iceni Futures.
The Iceni Futures team look at the built environment a little differently. The role of the team is to assess, predict and influence change across the development industry. The team explores how places and people will function in the future and utilises this expertise to provide strategic advice to create places which are fit for the future.
The Futures approach is different, in that it recognises that no single Iceni team has all the answers and that a collaborative approach is required to advise on change in a holistic manner. We understand the existing barriers and outdated development processes that persist across the industry and the importance of creating futureproofed sustainable development. Fundamentally, we believe that being innovative, working smarter and creating resilient places should be accessible to all.
Our focus on responding to the climate emergency remains at the heart of the team’s objectives. We will still provide leading consultancy advice for development projects relating to:
- Energy and carbon emissions
- Daylight, sunlight and overshadowing
- Flood risk and drainage
- Waste and recycling
The award-winning Sustainable Development Scorecard is a working example of how we are developing new techniques to bring the planning world into the digital era. We’re keen to explore how similar initiatives will help to deliver the intent of the Planning White Paper.
The Iceni Futures team will be hosting our first webinar on Thursday 24th September as part of World Green Building Week to set out the challenges the built environment will face over the next 30 years. We will provide more details in due course. To receive updates on the event please click the link here.
In the meantime, to find out more please visit our dedicated Iceni Futures page or contact Dan, Charlotte or Grace directly.
We look forward to collaborating with you, now and in the future.
Iceni Futures. Smarter Sustainability.
