The buildings sector contributes a large part to greenhouse gas emissions – whether in operation through electricity, natural gas or oil use or already during the production of building materials and the construction of the building. However, buildings can already be constructed today in an economically viable, almost greenhouse gas-neutral and thus sustainable manner. The biggest drivers for this can be found in the idea and planning phase, i.e. long before the building is completed.
Green Building Assessment
There is no uniform standard for the ecological assessment of buildings. For this reason, various, partially obligatory partial balance sheets are combined. Here too, an integrated life cycle analysis of the building materials used is prepared and summarised in a material balance. In addition, there is a detailed energy balance during the use phase. With the help of this balancing, an evaluation of the entire GHG potential as well as the energy flows can be represented. This information is increasingly requested by potential users, authorities and builders.
We support you in the selection of building materials and construction methods that enable a building that is as sustainable as possible. If you are unsure which of your desired variants is the most sustainable for your new building or renovation project, we will be happy to analyse your designs and support you in optimising them with the help of an ecological building assessment.
Through research and pioneering projects, we draw up dedicated ecological analyses and comparisons of variants on the basis of recognised international standards and norms.
