The demand for sustainable construction is on the increase. Clients, users and politicians request solutions which not only reduce the environmental impact and resource consumption but also strengthen social and aesthetic qualities. The very real challenge is to realize the many excellent intentions in the final project.
At Gottlieb Paludan Architects, we use a highly efficient management method which ensures that the sustainability vision will gradually materialize as the project progresses through the various phases towards realization.
We provide a preliminary screening of the project where conclusions and recommendations will form the basis for a dialogue with the client as to which sustainability measures may be realized in the project.
If the client decides to pursue these measures, we provide a management process where we jointly draft a plan with the objectives within the relevant areas. The status of these objectives is recorded in a log on an ongoing basis, and progress is reviewed and challenges dealt with at separate meetings during the proposal and project phases as well as at the end of the design phase.
Finally, we can provide certification of office and commercial buildings according to the DGNB standard (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen — German Sustainable Building Council).
