Excellence in design for greater efficiencies (EDGE) is an internationally recognised green building certification system, which certifies buildings which achieve a minimum of a 20% reduction in energy and water usage and embodied energy of the building materials used compared to a traditional construction. EDGE offers market leaders the opportunity to gain competitive advantage by differentiating their products and adding value to their customers. EDGE next generation green building certification is now appearing in more than 170 countries worldwide. Edge certification comes with a complimentary user-friendly software with localised costs and climate data for site-specific results.
Compared to BREEAM and LEED, Edge is designed based on scalability and can easily be used to assess large quantities of homes and businesses. Lawler Sustainability’s EDGE experts can help design and build greener developments by advising and informing from the design stage of a build right through the construction stage to completion and certification.
