Add value to your building with our third-party green building commissioning services
As worldwide demand for sustainable buildings grows, building owners, operators, investors and facility managers face the need to balance green building investments against potential cost savings and government incentives. Real estate assets that do not meet new sustainability standards may be at a significant disadvantage in the marketplace. TÜV SÜD offers first-class third-party building commissioning services to ensure that your business not only profits but thrives as a sustainable entity.
Internationally recognised certifications for building sustainability are purely voluntary. However, being certified to international green building standards is crucial for the long-term success of real estate and businesses. Each certification system provides criteria that give a holistic view of the quality of real estate.
A sustainability system can contribute towards healthier environments and ecosystems for living and working, simultaneously driving down operating costs while increasing the lifetime value of a building and its assets.Currently, there are several different sustainability certification schemes worldwide that address building design, construction and operation. These include:
These certifications provide information on a building’s environmental footprint and future sustainability. Deciding which certification system is the most suitable for your property or business requires comprehensive knowledge and expertise in national and international green building standards.
Designing sustainable buildings calls for a thorough understanding of local cultures and environments, quality standards, environmental regulations, safety standards, building codes, and carbon tax regulations.
TÜV SÜD has a global network of experts who facilitate the entire green building certification process. We will help define your sustainability objectives and assess the feasibility of certification for your building, new or old.
Our experts work alongside your team to explore alternative means of meeting the objectives of the building owners, budget constraints and certification requirements.
