Environmental certification of buildings
Filling the demand for environmentally certified buildings, ÅF is certified to coordinate the entire process.
As the demand for environmentally certified buildings increases, ÅF has begun offering environmental consultants certified to lead and coordinate the entire certification process.
ÅF works with the international systems BREEAM and LEED as well as with the Swedish Environmental Building Certification (Miljöbyggnad) and the European Green Building.
Our specialists are experienced in just about every aspect of environmental certification, from energy and materials to acoustics, lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and plumbing.
To ensure success in your environmental certification aspirations it is important to factor these issues into the process as early as possible. This not only optimises the potential for achieving the highest ratings, but it also keeps your costs down.
We work with new constructions as well as existing buildings. In connection with property development, an increasing amount of existing buildings are being certified. Environmental certification attracts more tenants/purchasers and increases the value of future transactions.
We utilise every opportunity to maximise the potential of the property, for example by making it more sustainable and thereby increasing its market value.
The European Green Building system focuses exclusively on a building's energy use, therefore is it often supplemented with another system.
The Swedish Environmental Building Certification (Miljöbyggnad), BREEAM and Green Building are administered by the Sweden Green Building Council, SGBC. LEED is administered by the US Green Building Council, USGBC.
