AWW Social Value Tracker | A toolkit for architects

Working in collaboration, Greengage and AWW have pioneered an in-house tracker to enhance the social impact of architectural design.

This tool, developed after having worked with AWW over the past year on projects including Bath School of Management and The Park Community Centre, allows seamless data input throughout the RIBA stages of the design process, in alignment with AWW’s ESG themes.

The brief was for a social impact tracker, inspired by BREEAM grading and RIBA stage-by-stage analysis. The tracker offers a quick snapshot of project progress and social value impact (see below), Serving as a guide to prompt designers to make decisions that contribute positively to society. The tool’s versatility extends to all AWW projects, exemplified in its successful application to assess social value impact in the new Mary Ward Centre, located in Stratford, London. The tracker uses calculators from RIBA Social Value toolkit for post occupancy, UK Treasury’s WELLBY (Wellbeing-adjusted Life Year), National TOMs and HACT Social value Bank.

AWW social impact rating

“AWW have weaved social value into the very fabric of their operations and design philosophy. Their commitment to integrating social impact has propelled them towards the prestigious Social Value Quality Mark Silver, thanks in part to this work. Further conversations include convening a working group to develop social value design metrics for considering the Social Value Impact of design at concept stages.” Heather Lavis, AWW
