Sustainable building design

Minimising the negative environmental impact of buildings throughout the entire life cycle of the building

Sustainable building design aims to minimise the negative environmental impact of buildings by efficiency and moderation in the use of materials, energy and the ecosystem at large throughout the entire life cycle of the building. This requires a conscious approach to design and choice of materials from the beginning of the planning phase as well as a strategy for the integration of technology and choice of building system. The objective is to create energy efficient buildings with a good indoor climate that can be adapted to users’ behaviour over time.  To do this, the Danish approach is contextual, co-operative and cost-effective without compromising the architectural value.
