Enhancing the relationship between people and environment
We depend on a healthy planet to live a healthy life. Sustainability is about meeting those healthy needs today, without adversely impacting on the needs of tomorrow.
When we recognise the benefits provided by our natural environment, we take more care with the living and non-living components of our environment and maintain them for future generations. This commitment, expressed in the Maori world view as kaitiakitanga, can be understood as guardianship. We take responsibility for the environment through the use of sustainable practices.
Creating healthier spaces
At Jacksons Engineering, we work with air, water and energy for the benefit of people’s wellbeing.
HVAC systems use air to keep people comfortable and healthy. Hydraulics systems provide clean water for drinking and washing, through to managing waste, drainage and more. And we enhance the comfort, safety, and usability of spaces through electrical systems like lighting and heating.
This aligns with the traditional understanding of the intimate relationship between people and their environment, where the health of a community is reflected in its environment and vice versa. Our expertise as environmental guardians creates a legacy of value for our clients, our environments, and our communities.
