Urban Village Group, a leading property development firm, is spearheading sustainable practices in the healthcare space, prioritising environmental, social, and economic considerations.

Recognising the critical role of sustainability in the property and construction market, Urban Village Group is committed to transforming the healthcare industry.

The company follows stringent green building standards such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method). These guidelines ensure sustainable construction, energy efficiency, and environmental performance, aligning with Urban Village Group’s dedication to sustainability.

Energy efficiency takes centre stage in the company’s approach, incorporating designs and technologies that optimise energy consumption. This includes the integration of energy-efficient appliances, insulation, and renewable sources like solar panels. Smart building technologies further enhance energy efficiency, benefiting both the company and its stakeholders.

Urban Village Group places a strong emphasis on eco- friendly and sustainable materials in its construction projects. The company carefully considers the environmental impact, durability, and recyclability of materials, promoting the use of recycled or locally sourced options to reduce carbon footprint.

A waste reduction strategy is integral to the construction process, with practices such as recycling construction waste, minimising packaging, and innovative repurposing methods. Sustainable demolition practices are also employed when needed.

Water-efficient technologies and landscaping designs are seamlessly integrated, reducing water consumption across all projects. Rainwater harvesting systems, low- flow fixtures, and landscaping contribute to the company’s commitment to water conservation.

Engaging with local communities is a cornerstone of Urban Village Group’s sustainable approach. The company seeks input from communities to align projects with local values, enhancing the social sustainability of developments.

Urban Village Group remains committed to long-term sustainability, implementing plans for maintenance and monitoring of sustainable features. Regular assessments ensure that properties continue to operate efficiently over time.

Staying at the forefront of sustainable construction, Urban Village Group embraces innovations that improve efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and enhance overall sustainability. The company emphasises a holistic approach, considering economic, social, and environmental factors in decision-making processes.
