Sustainable Architecture

Sustainable architecture is high on the list of priorities for commercial construction projects in London. Construction projects can create a vast amount of waste and many of the materials used in the industry can be damaging to the environment.


At Virtus, we have sustainability as one of our top priorities when working across our variety of projects. It is absolutely vital if we want to find ways to reduce the negative impacts we have on the world around us. Our goal is to be an industry leader in this field, by making all of our construction contracts Net Zero by 2050. This will be all encompassing so that any project we undertake, whether it be an office design, commercial fit out or small works, will be carried out as sustainable as possible.


We’re already taking the necessary steps to ensure we do at every step of the supply chain by assessing our carbon footprint, recycling, and in waste reduction. Sustainable architecture has become a top priority for us, alongside making sure our construction projects are functional and also more friendly to the environment. We try to use recycled materials and reclaimed materials where we can, as well as considering environmental impact throughout the supply chain.

Carbon Neutral Goals In Sustainable Architecture

Virtus is an accredited carbon neutral company in London. We invest into a variety of projects worldwide to help tackle some of the biggest environmental challenges our planet endures. We work closely with ClimatePartner to get an exact calculation of our companies carbon footprint and assess how we can reduce this. Sometimes, carbon cannot be reduced and so we need to offset it. So far, we’ve offset 156 tons of CO2 emissions which is the equivalent of the Statue of Liberty’s weight. We do this by investing in projects that will build a better future, and work towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals like wind energy projects in Brazil, creating more woodland in the UK, preventing plastic waste from getting into the ocean, and protecting forests in Colombia.

Procuring Sustainable Materials For Our Projects

A key part of sustainable architecture in London involves changing how we manufacture and install products during the construction process to lower our impact on the environment. We review every project based on certain criteria, which involves looking at recycled and reused content, the location of extraction, harvesting, and mode of transport for site deliveries.


We work with recycling companies that use reusable products and recycle construction waste. From reusable materials like recycled yoghurt pot hand basins, worktops made from reclaimed or recycled timber, and reused furnishings. If you want to reduce your company’s carbon footprint, we can discuss this with you during our initial consultation and go over all the sustainable options for our construction project to make it as planet-friendly as possible.
