RSP have had a tree planted in their name by Trees4Scotland through the Green Business Network.
Our tree is located in Teaghlach Wood, near the village of Comrie in the central Highlands. It will help not only to restore the Scottish landscape to the way that nature intended but also help the fight against climate change and the regeneration of wildlife habitats.
All trees planted by Trees4Scotland are varieties native to Scotland such as oak, birch, willow and rowan and they will be establishing permanent woodlands. Visit http://www.trees4scotland.com/ for more information or to plant a tree of your own.
RSP are pleased to announce that we are now licensed to carry out BREEAM assessments of data centres under the new BREEAM Data Centres 2010 scheme which replaces the 2008 scheme.
The 2010 Data Centres scheme allows more scope to assess data centres with varying additional facilities and provides environmental weightings related to the level of associated facilities in the building.

The Cube, an office development on Leith Street, Edinburgh for Kilmartin Property Group has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating.
RSP carried out both the M&E design and the BREEAM assessment of the building.
RSP moved into new offices in Edinburgh on the 11th of June 2010. We relocated from our former office at Straiton to Rosewell House, a recently completed office development on Harvest Road, Newbridge.
Rosewell House was designed by Michael Laird Architects and completed in 2009, RSP carried out the M&E design for the project. The building is situated adjacent to Scotmid's headquarters.
The 5300 sq ft of offices on the top floor of the building were selected after a thorough search of the office market. The final selection was influenced by the BREEAM Very Good rating, EPC rating of B and excellent links to the airport, motorways and tram infrastructure.
The new accommodation illustrates the practice's commitment to improve our business and minimise the effect on the environment.
