Respect for the environment, efficient use of resources and the ability not to spend more energy than necessary have become, in recent year, an added value in the construction sector. But it’s not enough to promise it, we have to prove it. Well aware of the prestige that a sustainability certification gives to a building, we offer consulting services for the following certifications with a common denominator: to reduce impact of buildings on the environment in a profitable way. We are specialists in energy and interior quality of the building, which is the most leading point of environmental certifications
