Green Building Certification
PJC provides hands-on consulting and documentation for green building certification consulting from a variety of green building bodies and rating systems.
We believe that good design results in certification points, therefore, our strategy for each certification is based around what makes sense for the building, and its occupants.
A green building rating tool sets standards and benchmarks for green building, and enables a third-party objective assessment as to how "green" a building
is by awarding points for each successful measure implemented.
Participation is voluntary rather than legislated and the tool designed by a cross-section of the design, construction and property industries. Successful accreditation can become a valuable marketing tool.
The documentation process is involved but can be expedited and facilitated by an accredited professional and effectively integrate with the other disciplines.
This service is offered in addition to our other services and constitutes consultation on the process of acquiring accreditation and facilitation for the collection
and collation of documentation from the project team.
We provide compliant specification, write the majority of the reports and coordinate the minimum supporting documentation necessary making it easy for the
client, consulting tem and contractors. In addition, we facilitate the whole certification process with the accreditation organisations.
Our team consists of many Green Star Accredited Professionals and we are periodically contracted as instructors for the Green Star AP courses and as independent Green Star Assessors.
A few of our team also participates in the Technical Working Groups for development of the Green Star tools and are active members of various Technical Advisory Groups of the Green Building Council of South Africa.
