Commercial and residential buildings are responsible for around 10% of global greenhouse gases (GHGs) before energy use and as buildings also account for 40% of energy use worldwide, there is real need for making buildings more sustainable.

Assessing the sustainability of a building should start by carrying out a survey to identify and target key improvements areas – waste, recycling, water and energy consumption. Experienced building engineers using intelligent integration can then design solutions, whilst identifying capital costs, return on investment and risks for the client.
