Sustainability Consulting

Future oriented construction focuses on people and the environment. It sounds simple, but this imposes a number of requirements that are not so easy to achieve. Such a building must be smart, self-sufficient and flexible, made of sustainable materials, healthy, energy-positive and carbon-neutral. Ultimately, the goal is for these features to have a positive impact on the overall economic balance of the property. In the field of sustainability and sustainable construction, the consultants and project managers at Drees & Sommer are at your service from the initial idea to operation.
