“We see sustainability as an important, self-evident and noticeable part of corporate identity. Green Building Design is our core competence. We have realized buildings all over the world according to
the highest certification standards. But we aim for a holistic commitment that reaches far beyond. The challenge is to top the minimal standards required. – That is what we call ‘supergreen’”.
“We are not only design architects, but also coordinate many projects as general planners. Long-time partnerships with experienced engineers and consultants are an important instrument for us for maintaining high quality standards and timely work allowing for speedy preliminary design phases.We have our in-house engineers, highly trained employees and general planners for Green Building Design and HVAC. It is important to consider the primary and secondary energy levels of the building materials used, equipment and building process with great care. But it is at least equally important to keep the use of resources low over the whole lifetime of a building and thus keep costs for maintenance as low as possible. In this sense we not only declare our good intentions, but commit ourselves to them. Special attention is paid to a sustainable energy concept and a rational building layout.”
