JHA is committed to Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) across the board on all of our projects.
We believe in the following key values:
Providing simple solutions to complex regulatory and rating systems requirements
Improving performance and reducing costs by good design
Exploring novel sustainability initiatives bespoke to individual projects
The use of modern sustainable technology should be to complement excellent design and add value to the development, not simply a ‘tick-box’ exercise to meet regulatory requirements.
Our company personnel include Green Star, ABSA, BREEAM, NABERS and CBD accredited professionals, covering green building rating schemes across the globe and drawing upon the strengths of all of them in our daily work.
