Pollard Thomas Edwards (PTE) specialises in the creation of new neighbourhoods and the revitalisation of old ones. Our projects embrace the whole spectrum of residential development and other essential ingredients which make our cities, towns and villages into thriving and sustainable places: schools and nurseries, health and community centres, shops and workspaces, places to recreate, exercise and enjoy civic life.
PTE offers a unique combination of commercial acumen, design talent and social commitment. Our rigorous, questioning approach produces design solutions that are intelligent, imaginative and which add value and joy. We work closely and collaboratively with our clients, forging long term relationships. We place great importance not only on the way that buildings look, but also on the way that they are made, the way they are used and how they age.
PTE’s focus on creating buildings and neighbourhoods with a lasting appeal to their occupiers is complemented by sound understanding and experience of the technical aspects of sustainability. In recent years the regulatory framework in which we operate has become increasingly complex, with the introduction of ambitious targets. PTE’s Head of Sustainable Design helps our project teams to give our clients practical advice on creating sustainable developments in a cost effective way.
Our projects have successfully met a range of Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM ratings which concentrate on delivering the most appropriate solution to each individual site. We take a holistic view of sustainability and therefore use fabric first, passive environmental design measures to cut energy use and minimise the impact on the wider environment.
PTE provide BREEAM and Code assessment services and are members and supporters of the following organisations:
• Code for Sustainable Homes Assessors
• Green Register of Construction professionals
