PTE uses practical experience and research to complement and inform one another. We contribute to best practice and debate through research, report-writing and public speaking. We enjoy collaborating with academics and other professionals, including a group of our closest peers and competitors.
Recent collaborative publications have included work on: housing density; estate regeneration; transforming the suburbs; housing our ageing population and zero carbon homes.
We also promote innovation through our built projects, for example: social innovation such as co-housing; technical innovation such as modular custom-built homes and exemplary energy performance; land use innovation such as combining schools with homes.
