Sustainability ‘Green Building’ Consulting
As a Sustainability Consultancy our role is to guide clients to acquire Green Star rating for architectural projects. Green Star certification serves as an accreditation that a development/structure is environmentally sustainable, marketable in the local and global economy, has substantially reduced energy, water and resource consumption and low maintenance costs as well as a high indoor air quality for its occupants.
We also ensure that, as an important feature of sustainability, there is reduction of greenhouse gas, toxic emissions and the embodied energy of the building materials through guidance on materials specification. Sustainability Building Design is a relatively new discipline in the South Africa, making it a worthwhile investment for any development.
Our project management service offers a holistic approach from the design, tender until construction phases. We have a solid background in Green Building Design, which is an advantage to the client as we are able to provide the design team with sustainability expertise. As project managers, we manage the contractual arrangement and this enables us to fairly distribute risk and hold professionals accountable in the delivery of a quality project on time and within budget. Communication is central to ensure a successful project, and we take great care in facilitating the flow of accurate information throughout the project management process to the client. The client’s interests are our priority.
We believe in not only being a part of building a greener Africa, but also sharing knowledge through training professionals and students within the construction industry. We provide lectures as part of courses offered by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA). Training is also provided on request.
