Sustainability for buildings

Sustainable developments ensure that future generations will also be able to meet their basic needs. Sustainability in existing buildings is mainly related to energy transition: less use of fossil fuels and increasing use of sustainably generated energy.

For new buildings, the government is already setting the "sustainability bar" higher and higher, but for existing buildings it is a lot less strict. Many building owners, landlords, users etc. do develop ideas to make their buildings more sustainable, but often get stuck how to get from an abstract wish to "work in progress". Even when the government does urge entrepreneurs to become more sustainable, it is often not easy for the same entrepreneurs to decide what the best measures are and how to implement them.

Optimization of real estate

The use of real estate has been changing at an increasingly rapid pace over the past decades. We are increasingly living in churches or offices, for example. Business premises are furnished according to the latest insights, but people are also increasingly working from home.

Installations are not always perfectly adjusted upon delivery, sometimes due to changed use but also due to limitations resulting from the original design.

By focusing on getting the most out of the design of the installations, taking a good look at the structural conditions and applying improvements where necessary, positive results can often be achieved quickly. Both through lower energy consumption and through satisfied and more productive staff. However, coming up with a solid business case is often the biggest obstacle for organizations to make progress and this is exactly where can help.
