Aberdeen appoints TFT onto new sustainable development framework
Aberdeen Asset Management has launched a new framework to ensure that all aspects of sustainability are proactively considered for all their major refurbishments and new development projects in the UK.
This initiative forms part of Aberdeen’s global Responsible Property Investment strategy which includes plans to improve the sustainability and energy efficiency across its £19.3bn property portfolio. Tuffin Ferraby Taylor has been appointed onto the framework following a competitive tender process amongst ‘best-in-class’ sustainability experts.
Aberdeen’s strategy aims to ensure that all aspects of sustainability are considered including energy efficiency post occupancy evaluation, health and well being of occupiers, local community engagement and investment. Aberdeen believes that more efficient and better designed buildings, providing tenants with lowered operational costs and improved working environments will enhance further the marketability of its properties, and as a result improve returns for its clients.
This will be a key initiative for Aberdeen’s property business in 2016 and so we are pleased to be part of this framework and to be playing a part in future proofing their portfolio to the benefit of both their investors and occupiers.
