Environmentally Sustainable Design ESD         


Principal Joe Holden is a New Zealand Green Building Council Accredited Professional.

5 star green buildings, Joe can lead the design team through the evaluation of a Green Star design and submission to the NZGBC.


ESD in a modern building is important for any client who cares about running

costs and has a defined corporate environmental policy, for developers many

tenants want to know about the sustainability of the building they are about to

lease and in a competitive market it may be the difference between securing a

tenant or not.


ESD looks at HVAC engineering, rainwater harvesting, comfort of occupants,

energy efficiency, access to public transport, materials and just about every

other part of a building in order to provide a more sustainable design and

lower ongoing operational costs.
