Sustainability and health

Future-proof building

To keep the ecological footprint of buildings as small as possible, sustainable solutions are more important every day. Sustainability and circularity are recurrent themes, because they are related to the future of organisations, employees and residents. Having ambitions in sustainability is the first step. But how do you then realise such a future-proof building, in which people are healthier and more productive and in which people reside with pleasure?

Making ambitions in sustainability tangible

Whether it comes to sustainability, circularity or health, DGMR’s consultants challenge clients to involve these themes into the design from the very start. Together, we search for what is possible and feasible. We like making the ambitions in sustainability as tangible as possible and go about this with an integral and innovative approach. We can rely on our extensive experience in sustainability consultancy.

More information about sustainability and health

  • BREEAM

    In more and more construction projects, we advise on BREEAM certification. DGMR’s consultants act as BREEAM expert or assessor for new construction and In-Use. We are perfectly capable of guiding the certification process, because we were at the cradle of BREEAM in the Netherlands. And we still participate in advisory groups at the Dutch Green Building Council (DGBC) in refining the development of this method.

  • LEED

    We see that LEED is requested more and more as an assessment method in the Netherlands. Particularly for internationally oriented, listed organisations or for example for airports. As LEED Accredited Professional, DGMR has broad and thorough knowledge of sustainable construction and the application of the LEED systematics. DGMR has extensive experience in the guidance of prominent projects and in realising high ambitions in sustainability.

  • WELL

    The health of building users has become more and more important to building owners and tenants. But how do you know if a building is healthy? And how do you improve the health of building users? Building proprietors, developers and employers have long wished for a certificate that proves their extra investment in a healthy working environment. WELL satisfies this long-standing wish. Together with subsidiary BBA Binnenmilieu, DGMR can guide the process of WELL certification. But also in the preliminary stage, we can determine health ambitions and demands.

  • Circularity

    How do you create a building that lasts fifty years or more, but can just as easily be demolished and rebuilt somewhere else? Or that consists of materials that can all be reused in many different ways? That requires the consideration of recycling from the very start of the design. DGMR’s consultants guide the design team on this area. We look at the feasibility and the application of innovations on the topic of circularity, for the development of flexible buildings that last a long time, by which we prevent waste and demolition.
