Hackland + Dore strive to pursue a sense of place that integrates both the environment and the home.

The combination of design, research, modern construction methods, and use of innovative sustainable energy solutions defines a distinctive successful place with minimal environmental impact. Hackland + Dore implement this ideology from inception to completion.  

Sustainable Development Policy

We strive to deliver resource efficient successful places with minimal environmental impact. Our Sustainable Development Policy includes but is not limited to: 

Reducing energy demand
Sustainable communities
Protecting the environment
Sustainable supply chain
Efficient modern methods of construction
Resource efficiency
Engaging customers, staff and partners

On all projects we start with a Fabric First solution with additional proposals to suit the building, the site, the Client's need and the budget to achieve the desired outcome.


As a registered Practice with RIAS Energy Design Certification Scheme we assist our clients to research and implement alternative energy efficient solutions.

Our in-house Section 6 Energy Certification service can gather the data necessary to perform SAP calculations, saving the need for a separate energy consultant to analyse proposals. This integrated/holistic approach streamlines the supply chain and allows us greater focus on the quality of design.

As a BS EN ISO 14001 : 2004 accredited organisation we strive to be environmentally aware in our business both in design, consultation and office management. We are committed to continually improve and review our Environmental objectives and targets in preventing pollution.
