Architecture and engineering  have a fundamental role in preserving natural resources  and, at the same time, creating comfortable environments for the people who will use them and value for our clients.

In Open Project, we believe that sustainability  must be a fundamental part of every building that we design.  We adopt a holistic approach of integrated planning, from the  formulation phases to the construction  phase, and we try to integrate the principles  of sustainability in every phase of the projects, in order to minimise the impact on the environment and optimise energy efficiency. To this end, right from the beginning of the project concept phases, great attention is paid  to the critical elements for energy/environmental sustainability  (analysis of the environmental context, orientation, space planning, construction technologies, plant-engineering building enclosure systems, choice of high plant-engineering technologies, management of renewable energy resources, management of rainwater, etc). With the aim of making the results we strive for objective, we have consolidated our experience in certifications of voluntary sustainability such as LEED or BREEAM, protocols managed directly by our own technicians.

In Europe the construction sector is one of the  biggest consumers of resources. According to the European Commission, with reference to the entire life cycle of a building, from the extraction of the raw materials to the production of the construction materials, to the use and maintenance, in Europe the buildings consume  around ½ the raw materials, ½ the energy, 1/3 of the water and produce around 1/3 of the waste.
We believe that buildings can be defined as “green buildings”  only if their environmental performance  has been measured by a protocol such as LEED or BREEAM, as we have done for some of our biggest recent projects. Besides our own projects, Open Project offers the following services: LEED Project Management and  LEED consulting for construction companies.
