Social Value

QAD Architects believes investing in the community in which we operate and deliver projects in is an integral part of what we do. It is fully embedded into our values of Creating, Communicating, Construction and exceeding Client expectations and is not simply an add on.

Our approach incorporates:

Designing buildings which are sustainable and exceed current building regulation requirements and where possible are accredited to BREEAM or alike.

Specifying products that have minimum site wastage and  where possible are made from over 80% recycled materials

Creating job opportunities for year out students (Part I & II Architectural Assistants) at QAD based on project deliverables and timescales

Working with schools across Leeds and promoting architecture through design competitions

Working with contractors in delivering Employment & Skills Plans

Sponsoring a children’s football team Osset Albion Juniors

Creating work experience placements for students under 18

Assisting sixth form students with university Interview workshops

Supporting our own existing urban environment through Leeds Civic Trust corporate membership
