If architecture is to mirror the current concerns of our society and anticipate its future, we must, without doubt, be fully aware of and sensitive to its environmental impact.
From LAP architects, as members of Breeam Asociados, we put into practice our commitment to the principles of sustainable construction by applying key concepts in the methodology and certification system of this international environmental certificate.
The Breeam certificate carries several benefits:
Economic: Energy consumption down between 50-70%, water consumption down approx. 40%. For the property owners, real estate value increases 7,5% , income 3% and the occupancy rate or real estate by 3,5%
Environmental benefits: Reductions in energy consumption have a direct impact on the environment, but the methodology provides further opportunities to minimize Co2 emissions during the life-cycle of the building
Social benefits: The indoor environment of the building where we work, study, shop or interact is an important contribution to our quality of life. Standards of air quality, exterior views or lighting and noise levels, directly affect the buildings making them more comfortable, safe and healthy for users. This will bring further economic benefits.
