Green Buildings

Boogertman + Partners is a Gold Founding Member of the Green Building Council South Africa. With increasing concerns over global warming and the pressures of growing urbanism, the practice fully supports the sustainable transformation of the Built Environment. Through an integrated design approach our project solutions create environments that are low in energy consumption, are efficient and flexible, and encourage optimal healthy lifestyles.

The practice makes a conscious effort to apply sustainable design principles as standard practise to all projects, even those that aren't aiming for official green certification. LEED and Edge certification along with the Green Star rating tools have provided a platform for everyone in the Built Environment to not only encourage sustainable design but also to measure the level of sustainability achieved.

As the leading Africa practice, working with green consultants and green accredited team members several projects have pioneered the introduction of new Green Star rating tools in partnership with the Green Building Council. Sandton Gate piloted one of the first Green Star Sustainable Precinct ratings and Mon Tresor Business Gateway Office Park was the first Green Star rated building in Mauritius in 2019. Further in Nairobi 3 of the ALP logistics warehouses in TATU city received the first industrial Edge Green Certification awarded in Africa.
