Environmental building certifications schemes
How do we design sustainable building? Environmental building certification schemes are used to assess and benchmark the quality level of sustainability in buildings. The list of global certifications is long and growing, and all vary in in scope and documentation of performance.
The increasing importance of environmental building certifications schemes is fueled by a rapid growing construction industry that is constantly challenged to meet sustainability demands focusing on the social, economic and environmental aspects of a building project. Certifications of sustainable buildings define and benchmark the quality level for sustainability.
Certifications are also actively used to ensure and document a high level of quality in the design and construction of a building project.Consequently, certified sustainable buildings outperform conventional buildings on several parameters.
We contribute to major environmental building certification schemes DGNB, LEED, BREEAM, WELL and HQE.
