Global architecture firm Grimshaw joins ResponsibleSteel™

Grimshaw was founded by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw in 1980. The practice operates worldwide, across all major sectors, with offices in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Dubai, Melbourne and Sydney, employing over 500 staff.

Grimshaw’s mission has always been to deliver lasting, meaningful design that brings value and joy to clients and users. With each project Grimshaw delivers, there is an innate respect of the fragility of the planet and its depleting resources. Building on this history, the practice’s future global objectives are to design net zero carbon ready buildings and infrastructure by 2025 and to deliver socially and environmentally regenerative buildings by 2030.

Dr. Paul Toyne, Practice Leader for Sustainability at Grimshaw said: “To address the climate emergency, we need participation from all parts of the construction supply chain. Steel contributes to global greenhouse gas pollution, so we are proud to join ResponsibleSteel in their efforts to support the steel sector to reduce emissions and ensure sustainability and responsibility in every stage of steel’s value chain.”

“It is very exciting to welcome our first member from the Architecture/Design sector to ResponsibleSteel.” said Ali Lucas, Executive Director, ResponsibleSteel.  “Working with, and learning from an organisation like Grimshaw, with their wealth and depth of experience globally in designing socially and environmentally sustainable buildings, will bring a new level of insight into our programme and project planning and discussions.  I am sure that other ResponsibleSteel members will also benefit greatly from having Grimshaw participate and share their expertise.”
