Our approach is open and inclusive inviting fresh ideas from our team to transform places and spaces in new ways. We listen first then challenge to ensure responsible outcomes with integrity and ambition.


social and governance

Recognising our impact on the environment has been at forefront of our business since founding the practice in 1993. Barr Gazetas are committed to a management system that reduces the environmental impact of our activities at every stage, from design decisions and the sourcing of office services, to onsite supply chains and construction contractors. We are proud of our positive workplace culture and believe in our position as a force for good within the built environment industry. High levels of staff engagement and financial transparency sit alongside internal strategies for maintaining a sustainable and ethically-minded business, forming a long-term and resilient approach to our design and practice.

Our Net-Zero

Our in-house sustainability team promote our science-based net zero target as an integral part of all projects, with the consideration of materials, construction, durability and carbon footprint in each design decision forming part of our 2050 net zero target. Our supply chains play a vital role in achieving these aims and we include environmental performance and training in our selection criteria for consultants and contractors. Adopting carbon offsetting and promoting retrofit and the use of sustainable materials help us maintain our environmental management system to meet the requirements of ISO 14001:2015.

As a RIBA chartered practice we adopt RIBA guidance to help deliver a reliable and competent architectural service to our clients and users of the buildings we design. Our internal stage processes and interim health checks for sustainability, design and quality form part of our milestone reviews alongside input from our design champions and technical director.
