Sustainability and DGNB
Lasting through time
Dissing+Weitling strives to create lasting and fulfilling architecture. We want our solutions to make a positive difference to the people who use them every day and we keep a holistic mindset rooted in local conditions and pragmatic use of resources.
“We keep a holistic mindset and consider everything from materials to a company’s brand values. Many people spend most of their waking hours at the workplace, so we take the job of designing the best possible environment very seriously”.
– Daniel Hayden, Partner and Architect MAA
At Dissing+Weitling, we want our solutions to make a positive difference to the people who use them every day; we address sustainability from an environmental, a financial, a social and a technical perspective, and what we do is rooted in local conditions and pragmatic use of resources.
This may include matters of how and to what extent construction materials and installations have an adverse impact on the environment – e.g. the energy consumption embedded in the materials, or when it makes sense to use climate-improved concrete, or when wood is the best solution.
Consultancy on sustainability and DGNB
Our sustainability managers identify the sustainable potentials of a project and counsel developers and other collaborators. We equally consider processes, materials and finances, and our consultancy may result in advice on certifications or procedures and tools.
Our knowledge on sustainability is systematised through the international certification system DGNB in Denmark and our own ’quality handbook’ (based on the principles of ISO 9001:2015), which ensures that our consultancy and construction meet the latest environmental standards in all design and construction phases. In practice, DGNB is a point system enabling us to conduct an overall evaluation of a construction or an urban area’s sustainability score.
Our DGNB experts can be booked for workshop on sustainability and certifications.
