The Top Three Reasons Why Developers Should Build Green


Higher Sales and Rent Value 
In 2013 projects which were rated ‘very good’ by BREEAM achieved a 15% higher sales value and a 19% higher rental value than those with lower green credentials.

Improved Energy Efficiency 
Green buildings have been shown to save money through reduced energy and water use plus long-term operating and maintenance costs.  Energy savings in green buildings typically exceed any design and construction cost premiums within a reasonable payback period.

Quick Return on Investment 
As investors and occupiers become more knowledgeable about the environment, buildings with better sustainability credentials will enjoy increased marketability.
