Sustainable design

The need for sustainable development 

The construction industry is no different from any other sphere of society in that respect for the environment and sustainable development have become essential. The way buildings are designed and built has changed, and NFOE is at the forefront of architecture’s environmental revolution. Regardless of whether our clients’ goal is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), WELL or Passivhaus certification, or if they simply want to meet the certifications’ requirements, we help them build buildings designed for the well-being of future generations.

The means to achieve our ambitions 

To obtain tangible energy efficiency and greening results, you have to be committed to taking proven steps. Environmental stewardship is our top priority. We use an integrated approach, envisioning each project in its entirety to align its various elements with the intended environmental objectives. This holistic approach is a factor of optimization and efficiency. Our highly efficient buildings meet the ambitious criteria of regenerative and resilient design.

High-tech expertise 

We have vast experience in designing laboratories and other complex regulated environments. These projects require the use of state-of-the-art electromechanical systems, a fundamental expertise of sustainable development. Our ability to incorporate engineering elements is a strength that allows us to pursue high environmental criteria.

A team trained in sustainable development 

Our team has solid expertise in sustainable development. Some of our senior staff are experts in the field. They have in-depth knowledge of LEED, WELL and Passivhaus requirements and have worked on numerous projects that needed to fulfil specific guidelines to obtain a green building certification. They work closely with multidisciplinary teams throughout the integrated design process. Our team recognizes the importance of incorporating biophilia and passive systems. We are committed to building a sustainable future for all through architecture.
