3rd working meeting within the project: PARTNERSHIP AT ALL STAGES OF THE LIFE CYCLE OF A SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION INVESTMENT.
The seminar aspired to highlight the need for integrated planning consisting in a close horizontal cooperation of all participants of the investment process as early as at the building concept phase. Currently, the traditional model prevails in which the early design is done without the participation of the industries that make up the entire life cycle of a sustainable construction project. The seminar is yet another meeting held in the series, Partnership for Sustainable Construction.
The notion of sustainable development, as one of the top EU priorities, has been around for some years now. Among other things, it also covers corporate social responsibility and sustainable urban development. In our opinion, no less important, or perhaps the most important, component of this subject is the sustainable construction industry. Sustainable means aligned with the environmental protection standards and resident/tenant/user-friendly.
Therefore, we have created a coalition of companies that lead the industries involved in the various stages of a sustainable construction project (investor, designer, developer, project engineer, manufacturer of construction materials, general contractor, site and building manager, financing institution, and lawyers).
The effort of the coalition and participants of the meetings held so far is the definition of five top needs which, when satisfied, should advance the development of sustainable construction in Poland.
