Climate Resilience

The Climate Resilience team at McGregor Coxall is working to help clients understand how the Task Force for Climate Disclosure (TFCD) requirements impact government and corporate reporting. Resilience planning ensures climate-related property risks can be identified & mitigated.

By integrating the Biourbanism systems model and utilising digital twins developed by our Biourbanism Lab, we deliver resilient solutions for our clients and communities.

We produce design recommendations and nature-based solutions based on assessing multiple hazards. Our interdisciplinary and data-supported approach simplifies complexity and ensures our designs are resilient to escalating climate shocks and stresses.

Designing for Financial and Risk Outcomes

Investing in climate resilience not only addresses environmental sustainability but also yields significant financial and risk management benefits. By implementing our Biourbanism led solutions, projects can see;

1. Reduced Operational Costs: Nature-based solutions, such as green roofs and walls, improve energy efficiency by regulating building temperatures, thereby reducing heating and cooling costs. Water-sensitive urban design decreases water consumption and lowers utility expenses.

2. Enhanced Property Value: Properties designed with climate resilience in mind are increasingly attractive to investors and buyers. Features such as flood-resistant infrastructure, renewable energy sources, and sustainable landscaping enhance the market value of developments.

3. Mitigated Risk and Liability: Proactively addressing climate risks like flooding, urban heat, and sea level rise helps to avoid costly damage and business disruptions. This not only protects physical assets but also minimises liability and insurance premiums.

4. Long-term Investment Security: Sustainable designs ensure that buildings and infrastructure can withstand future climate challenges. This longevity provides security for long-term investments, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.

5. Access to Funding and Incentives: Governments and financial institutions increasingly support sustainable projects through grants, subsidies, and favourable financing terms. Projects demonstrating strong climate resilience are more likely to qualify for such benefits, enhancing their financial viability.
