Buildings that use resources sustainably and provide an environment for people to thrive are critical. We provide the tools and advice to help make this happen.

A holistic understanding of how buildings affect people and the world’s ecosystems is lacking. This is critical if we are to produce cities that are not only sustainable, but provide thriving, healthy and resilient communities for people to live and work in. This broader, more comprehensive approach to building design and development is essential for making informed and effective decisions. Thrive, through applied research, provides the evidence base needed to support and inform the needs of our future buildings.
