Livingstone understands that zero carbon, even carbon negative design, and the solutions that enable these objectives are perhaps utopian; but ambitious and immediate action towards decarbonizing the built environment is critical and – most importantly – achievable.
Consequently, we meet our clients where they are on their journey, taking incremental, practical yet bold and decisive steps toward the most sustainable design solutions. This means not only looking at traditional engineering through a lens of continuous improvement, transformation, and innovation, but also going back to the basics, because simple solutions are often the most sustainable.
We specialize in the pragmatic design of solutions that minimize environmental impact in a building’s construction and day-to-day operations throughout its lifetime. This includes processes and systems which take into account future changes and mitigate against transformational upheaval. We are keenly focused on progressive design of decarbonized and regenerative solutions embedded in circular economy principles to create resilient and equitable systems that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of nature.
