LITTLE BY LITTLE

 

The smallest changes can make a big difference! In the studio, we employ a paperless policy reducing the amount of paper, ink, and energy used.

 

An average residential project uses over the equivalent of 2,250 A4 sheets of paper! That includes admin, agendas, markups, tenders & drawings.

 

If a small practice took on two projects a month for one year, they would produce over 50,000 sheets of paper! the equivalent of 3.4 trees! Here at JRD taking on the same projects, we would use 0.1 trees, Go Us! 

 

This small change is one of the many ways we at JRD are determined to make a big difference.
