What gives us Purpose?

At Sava our purpose is empowering people and organisations to make a positive impact towards making buildings better by giving them the skills and technology they need to adapt and thrive in a fast-changing world.

We try to live our purpose through our work every day by focusing on four principles:

Making a difference

We work in sectors that create a real difference to the environment or to people’s lives

Committed to quality

We are committed to quality and “doing the right thing”, which has been part of our DNA since we were formed in 1983

Why is Making Buildings Better important to us

There are 29 million residential properties in the UK. Combined, their worth is valued at over £7.4 trillion. They are a national asset of the highest social and economic importance.

But at an individual level, the home provides security, shelter, belonging and identify. And yet, we face many challenges with our housing. In addition to affordability and adequate supply, the quality of our homes can be greatly improved. Energy efficiency and the impact on climate change, the affordability of keeping warm, providing a safe and hazard free environment, their adaption to changing work/life balance and their adaption to increased summertime overheating are just some of the issues that we need to tackle.

Sava is helping to make buildings better, principally through increasing skills and knowledge, and providing technology to analyse their performance and make recommendations for improvement.
