Improving sustainable procurement

BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, procurement, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building's environmental performance.

Muse is committed to BREEAM, having achieved ‘Excellent’ ratings for commercial office schemes in Warrington and Liverpool, and for civic office schemes in Doncaster and Wakefield, as well as ‘Very Good’ ratings for four other office buildings and a hotel.

Supporting local employment

We use local labour, where appropriate, to help boost the local economy and give the community a greater sense of ownership of a scheme.

Through the ‘Build up’ initiative at ourTalbot Gateway development in Blackpool, for example, all four contractors worked together to create local employment across the scheme, exceeding original targets. Contractors have also assisted local students studying qualifications at Blackpool and Fylde College.
