Innovative Projects: Location, Design and Ecology
Due to Luxembourg’s place at the heart of Europe, excellent transport links and outward-looking policies, many global organisations locate head offices and operations offices here. They demand inspiring design, cutting-edge quality and optimum architectural performance. The Luxembourg government constantly innovates to improve access and facilities for the local and cross-border workers who fill these buildings. See our Green Building Offers below.
Green buildings reduce environmental impact and energy expenditure through geothermal energy, solar panels, rainwater recovery, better waste management and improved building-use cost management. They enhance wellbeing via natural lighting, acoustics, noise reduction and ambient air quality. Most hold eco-certificates, e.g. BREEAM, LEED, HQE®, DGNB.
“BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is a voluntary measurement rating for green buildings established in the UK by the Building Research Establishment (BRE). Since inception, it has grown in scope and been exported in various guises across the globe. Its equivalents in other regions include LEED North America and Green Star in Australia, and HQE in France. BRE and CSTB (the French Building research centre) have signed a memorandum of understanding committing them to the alignment of BREEAM and HQE.” (Wikipedia). Such ratings offer:
- Market recognition for buildings with low environmental impact
- A benchmark higher than standards required by regulation
- Confirmation that Cradle-2-Cradle design decreases ecological footprint
- Inspiration for innovative solutions to minimize environmental impact
- Assurance that a building incorporates best environmental practice
- A standard showing progress towards corporate environmental objectives
- Tools to improve work and life environments and reduce running costs.
