Sustainable building construction

– Sustainability from the beginning

Environmentally, socially or economically sustainable principles can be incorporated in new buildings and shell structures as well as in building renovation.

When the client wants a sustainable building, Aarsleff can advise about standards and help prioritise the opportunities already in the early project phases. We have the resources for project management and handling of sustainable building projects and for ensuring that the principles are complied with and documented in order to obtain the final certification.

Sustainability in three categories
Sustainable principles within building construction include:

  • Environmental sustainability: Including reduction of energy consumption, CO2 emission and waste
  • Social sustainability: Including indoor climate, safety and comfort
  • Economical sustainability: Including efficient use of area, focus on overall economy and life cycle.

Aarsleff can provide know-how and expertise in all three categories and can help the client increase the focus and identify the measures needed to make certified sustainable new buildings, shell structures or renovation projects.
