From Project to Corporate Strategy
We began early on to consider the issue of how to integrate sustainability requirements into planning, construction and operation processes.
Particularly in companies with recurring processes like in the housing industry, our experience with regard to the current and future requirements of the German federal BEG programme for the funding and financing of efficient buildings is a great advantage.
Above and beyond certification, we help our customers with the development of sustainability strategies – be it for developing a climate-neutral supermarket for a major chain or the nationwide site development of one of the most venerable German industrial companies.
Guidelines and Working Aids
As an example of the systematic integration of sustainability requirements into planning and construction processes, in recent years we have developed a series of customer-specific manuals and guidelines.
Interested users can download some of them.
Training Sessions and Talks
For many years, we have been active as trainers for the DGNB in the areas of auditor and consultant training.
We have also shared our experience with sustainability with other groups like the housing and real estate association VBW in Baden-Württemberg and as part of many meetings and conferences in Germany and abroad.
We are also available to conduct in-house training sessions on topics tuned to your needs.
Sustainability has been gaining relevance for years as a criterion for decisions when planning new buildings and renovations. Key sustainability features of a building are already defined in the very early planning phases.
But which concept or design is the most sustainable? How can different variants be compared with each other in a comprehensible way? And how can it be ensured that the right decisions are made in the early project phases to prepare for sustainability certification at a later stage?
We have developed the sustainability check tool to objectively and transparently compare design-relevant sustainability features, for example as part of a comparison of variants or a planning competition.
