Sow & Reap can help you define your green roadmap whether at a company, portfolio, building or product level. With a solid understanding of solutions, stakeholder channels, benefits and pitfalls we are ideally placed to ensure that you start with the end in mind.
In addition to defining the greening strategy for new construction projects, Sow & Reap can translate this strategy into specific briefs for various professionals and contractors involved. In this way everyone on the team is able to understand the scope upfront.
Guidance & Capacity Building
To see the most benefit from green building practices, developing knowledge and capacity in-house is crucial. Sow & Reap can provide tools, training and guidance to companies or teams in the following areas.
- Green building design and construction
- Greening existing buildings
- Certification of new or existing buildings
- Operations and product greening
With extensive understanding of Green Building Rating Tools, we can assist you in achieving formal certification on your building, unlocking a myriad of associated benefits. Using the Green Building Council of South Africa’s Green Star SA Rating System, recognition can be achieved for:
- Energy & Water Benchmarking (existing buildings)
- Existing Building Performance
- New Building Design & Construction
- Interior Fit-out Projects
Through cutting edge building simulation and modeling, informed decisions can be made during design stages of your project. Specifically factors affecting Energy, Daylight and Thermal Comfort.
Sow & Reap can assist in demonstrating compliance with SANS 10400-XA through a Rational Assessment using certified building simulation software. This approach offers significantly more design freedom than the other more prescriptive compliance routes put forward in the SANS 10400-XA standard. Also, it can help significantly save on double glazing costs.
We strongly believe in custom-made solutions. For this reason we can develop a bespoke offering to suit your specific sustainability needs, no matter how big or small.
