High-standard building products – what does their use mean for building certification? In which categories of international systems such as LEED, BREEAM, DGNB can product properties can score points?  What are the advantages for investors, builders, architects and planners? We have been testing products and assessing buildings for decades, so we can help you find the right answers. We are happy to arrange a free initial consultation to explore the potential.

  • Presentation of advantages based on product-specific EPDs
  • Preparation of system-compliant basis for building lifecycle assessments
  • Presentation of environmentally and socially compatible material extraction
  • Investigation of the suitability for dismantling and recycling of materials and construction systems
