We coordinate large-scale regional and property-specific environmental certification processes in Finland and internationally. Smooth certification processes require diverse expertise in environmental matters, energy and technical building services.
Benefits of environmental ratings in design, construction and use
Environmental certificates guide design and decision-making during construction, and help to take users into account. The certification process also increases the sales value of the office property, shopping centre or educational property and improves the owner’s reputation as a responsible operator. Environmental certification often brings financial benefits by reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs.
Energy efficiency combined with human wellbeing
During the certification process, all the project parties work together to ensure a smooth flow of information. Certificates consider a range of areas, such as energy and water consumption, waste management, recycling, carbon footprint, emissions and traffic.
Finnish and international environmental certificates
We manage the practical application of different certificates. We participate in the application of international certificates, such as BREEAM, LEED and WELL, and assist with Finnish certificates, such as the RTS environmental rating and the Nordic Swan ecolabel. In the future, certifications will be more closely related to BIM models, covering all of our design operations.
