Within the full range for architectural and design services carried out by the practice and its specialist units, John McAslan + Partners offers masterplanning, design, development, implementation and post-completion expertise from pre-design analysis through building life-cycle management and post-occupancy evaluation. This has evolved through the research the practice has carried out across its varied portfolio.
We believe successful buildings and architectural innovation are only sustainable when embedded in rational analyses of context, function, materiality, and environmental impact. The practice has extensive experience in the design of environmentally sustainable buildings which meet BREEAM and LEED benchmarks. Sustainability is at the core of our design approach and process, believing that sustainable design does not need to mean additional cost or complicated processes but rather means careful and clever design that is smart about the use of materials, looks at passive measures over mechanical and the gathering of knowledge to innovate.
Our projects look at sustainable measures from the outset and typically employ a range of passive measures, with locally sourced materials as well as renewable technologies such as photovoltaic panels, solar hot water heaters, water conservation and re-use, as well as centralised district cooling plants. Notable projects that demonstrate this ethos are the Charles Carter Building and Statistics Centre for Lancaster University rated BREEAM Excellent and our multi-award winning Engineering Building rated BREEAM Outstanding, also for Lancaster University. Internationally, the Cultural Forum, Msheireb Museums, Msheireb Mosque and Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Doha, Qatar, all have a LEED Gold rating, which is a significant achievement in the Middle Eastern Climate.
