Usually these handbooks are available online for the clients organisation through fully protected internet or intranet sites.
To many companies this has become a topic they have to have on their agenda. The management of sds-i have been on the forefront of ecological design since the 1980s when Christian Cuhls studied Ecological Design and won already awards for healthy buildings from sustainable materials, with grass roofs and natural materials throughout.
We are not following just a trend, we are using sustainable development as a unique feature to reduce life cycle cost, actual running and maintenance cost, construction cost and to provide a healthy environment for tenants, visitors and the neighbourhood.
The world needs to reduce its carbon footprint. Nothing will happens unless we start. sds-i has been advising a number of companies producing a range of systems to reduce or eliminate CO2. Recently we have been advising a company developing a rotation heat generator (proRotaTherm).
