What does Building Performance mean to you?
Every day, we see buildings that do not perform. They consume too much energy, maintenance costs are too high and people living and working in them are unhappy, unproductive or even sick.

We don’t sell equipment or materials. We develop improvement projects and focus on the result. We are prepared to take our responsibility and share the investment risk.

We provide solutions from start to finish, covering all relevant techniques.
We participate in several research projects related to innovation in the field of performance contracting and energy efficiency.
