Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD)

Biscoe Wilson Architects are dedicated to designing and evolving environmentally sustainable design solutions in the built environment. Each project is reviewed at critical milestones in the design and construction phases to maximize environmental sustainability.

Design decisions about, siting, passive solar design, material selection, selection of “like minded” sub-consultants are all integral to the success of each project.

To be sustainable, the places and structures we create should leave the world in a better state than when we began our work.

Robert Biscoe has a degree in Australian Environmental Studies and continues to promote an understanding of environmental sustainable in the practice. Biscoe Wilson Architects have entered a number of competitions for ESD design and have received both industry, government and peer recognition for their work.
