Sustainable EDGE is a sustainability consulting practice with three decades of experience with successful sustainable projects, and of addressing climate change emissions in the built environment.
At Sustainable EDGE, we strive to expand the boundaries of sustainable projects beyond merely reducing negative impacts. Sustainable EDGE provides leadership in sustainable design through realization of exemplary projects. Guided by our Seven Principles of Sustainable Design, we use physical science and engineering to point the way to the most effective and elegant integrated design solutions.
Our designs aim to enhance the health of occupants and their surrounding air, water, land, and communities. Our knowledge of thermal envelope design, energy modeling, building science, HVAC systems and renewable energy supply strategies serves to inform the Integrated Design Process. The final product is a sustainable project that is beneficial the owner and the larger community
Sustainable EDGE Ltd. is devoted to servicing all sectors of the built environment that might benefit from sustainable design and consulting, ranging from the building scale to community planning and policy development.
We aim beyond ‘doing less harm’. We aim beyond ‘climate neutral’.
“Now that climate change is upon us, we must not only do our utmost to reverse it, we must revisit first principles and develop new techniques, to provide responsible design for the resulting physical, social and economic changes that will occur during the life of the project”, says Mario Kani.
We can help you to harness sun’s energy in form of heat and daylighting by investing in a high-performing, durable envelope, interior mass and daylighting technologies. This investment can usually be offset by a synergistic reduction in mechanical systems. This is one example of the many strategies that we can implement.
Our sustainable solutions need not add cost, only value. That`s the Sustainable EDGE.
