For new building and infrastructure projects, to evaluate the sustainability performance.
With global political discourse shifting in favor of sustainability, transitioning to green buildings is a now a question of when, not if. GSAS Design & Build (GSAS-D&B) validates that your project is designed and built with special consideration for the environment. By assessing, documenting and monitoring the environmental performance of your project, this third-party certification helps you reduce your project’s carbon footprint while also adding transparency and integrity to your project’s sustainability claims. For today’s informed client base, a green building certification works as a stamp of approval validating the sustainability credentials claimed by your project.
GSAS-D&B certification requires measurements of relevant parameters and aspects in accordance with accepted practices, considering the impacts the building can mitigate. The sustainability issues covered under this certification are related to categories of Urban Connectivity, Site, Energy, Water, Materials, Indoor Environment, Cultural & Economic Value and Management & Operations.
