Inflating expectation in a world that overstates most ideas has a horrible tendency to rebound on the proposer.
Contrastingly, we have reached a ‘tipping point’ in the debate on environmental sustainability that means we need to be radical.
It may be that it is too late to avert much of the consequence of neglect and indifference. Perhaps we should be reconciled to mitigation as the most that can be achieved.
Announcing the MASCo Walcot PLAN
Human resolve and the probability that we can apply technology and science to avert the predicted problems of environment and resource efficiency is always a possibility.
We are going to look very foolish if as yet undiscovered solutions, delivered by research, fail to materialise.
In the meantime to give credence to a personal belief that analysis and negativity are valueless without commitment to changing and struggling against problems that confront society, MASCo Walcot have a Plan and the resolve to do our part to address the challenge.
Our Grand Experiment gathers momentum
The acquisition of the Walcot Street Yard in Bath enables a ‘Grand Experiment’.
The Architectural Salvage yard at 108 Walcot Street will continue to function as a resource for architectural features and period and traditional materials.
Together with conservation skills to support the City of Bath’s status as a World Heritage Site we intend to make the yard a centre of excellence for Architecture, Design and Sustainability .
A Sustainable Plan – but yet to be revealed
The Plan includes a scheme which will change the way Sustainability effects all aspects of our built environment.
It is too soon to expand on the detail of our scheme, there is much to do and lots of work ahead before our exciting proposals can be revealed in-depth. It is never the “right time” to over-hype an intention, but we believe the need exists to engender both urgency and optimism for change through action.
It is our intention to extend the institution of Walcot created by Rick and Jane Knapp to become a pivotal element in all things of environmental excellence to bring about the change that will alter the way we regard integrated environmental thinking.
