Sustainability & Wellbeing

Companies that support their employees’ wellbeing report 41% less health-related costs which contributes to a 35% lower turnover rate. Our projects, which you can explore in our Case Studies section, emphasise how our industry expertise helps create workspaces for our clients that support wellbeing, vitality and offer a true sense of purpose. Great design and layout reflect an organisation’s vision for effective working and functionality as well as internal environmental factors such as visual and acoustic comfort. Effective layouts can also encourage occupant activity and avoid prolonged periods of sitting.

As a responsible contractor it is in our best interests, both from the point of the environment and best value, to harness good working practice, minimise waste and investigate environmentally friendly products. Before any development starts, Ultimate and project designers work with the client to establish the environmental impact which the project or work activities may have. The required provisions are made in order to eliminate, as far as practicable, any sources of environmental damage or pollution, or to establish sufficient control measures to minimise the harmful effects of construction activities.

We spend around 90% of our time indoors, giving each and every building we encounter over our lifetime the potential to have tangible impact on our quality of life. A further tool we can use during the design process is the WELL Building Standard® – a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.

At Ultimate, we prioritise environmentally-sound products and brands during the procurement of goods and services.

That’s why we are proud to partner with like minded, sustainability focused brands, such as BAUX. Watch to find out more on their 100% Bio-Based Acoustic Revolution:

Material specification is core to every fit-out project and can directly impact user health, wellbeing and productivity. We assess the environmental and social impact when selecting materials to ensure the lifecycle, from source to use to disposal, is as sustainable and healthy as possible. We design for enhanced durability and optimise use of easily repairable items to reduce maintenance, repair and premature replacement costs. By prioritising high-quality and low-VOC products with recycled content, we support responsible sourcing, reduce waste and promote wellbeing.

Furniture procurement plays a key role in the functionality and flexibility of a commercial space. By assessing your exact furniture requirements, we calculate the number of workstations required and maximise your space usage. For example, selecting products that can be easily demounted and reconfigured allows for flexibility, ensuring optimal efficiency and avoiding redundant furniture. We work closely with a carefully selected range of brands who celebrate take-back schemes and circular economy ethos’, to name a few.
