The Valideo system implies a global environmental approach for Sustainable Construction (materials, water, air, etc.). As a result, it enables you to go beyond the minimal scope and to anticipate future legal regulations.
What are the legal obligations?
Legislation exists for the majority of the technical domains concerning the referential: energy, water, construction site, accessibility for disabled people, noise, worker protection, etc. For example, the energy performance requirements as stipulated in the European directive 2002/91/CE on the "Energy Performance of Buildings" and subsequent modifications, are incorporated in Valideo.
The criteria of public contracts will integrate gradually the idea of Sustainable Construction.
An incomplete framework
By definition, the legal level represents the minimal requirements to attain in terms of environmental impact. In many areas, however, the legislation is insufficient or even inexistent. Valideo allows you to take in account these elements like transports modalities and integration into the social community. Anticipating regulations which are not yet official will become a source of development and growth for your project.
A voluntary approach
Valideo is based on the vision that a building is not just coincidentally built in a specific place. A construction reflects an intention and is the result of a voluntary process that revolves around a shared idea. Valideo provides all participants with the tools to match their Sustainable Construction ambitions, on the basis of four major themes in a constantly updated referential. (Learn more...).
