Green Building Certification

A partnership approach to surpassing sustainable goals

By definition, a green building is a development that is environmentally sound and resource efficient. It is designed to reduce the impact on the built and natural environment and the health of its occupants, by weighing up everything from the construction materials to the efficient use of energy.

We have over a decade of experience in supporting contractors and their teams, and helping them decipher and meet even the most stringent of green certification requirements.

International Rating Certification

Our team has more than a decade of experience in working with several global rating system standards and project types, including:

  • LEED GBD+C (New Construction, Core and Shell, Schools)
  • LEED EBOM (Existing Buildings and Operations)
  • LEED for Homes
  • LEED GID+C (Interiors)
  • Estidama Pearl Communities
  • Estidama Pearl Buildings
  • Estidama Pearl Villas
  • GSAS (All Typologies, Sports, Rail, etc.)
  • BREEAM International
  • DGNB
  • WELL

Construction Certification Management

We work with GBCI, Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council, GORD, The BRE, WELL Institute and DGNB to provide the following services:

  • On-site Construction Supervision
  • Material Tracking and Verification
  • Training and Development
  • Waste Management
  • ESC Management
  • IAQ Management

Why Green Building Certification is Important

With the global population growing at a phenomenal rate, there is more demand on the world’s resources than ever before. At Alpin, we believe that we all have a responsibility to help shape developments that support a more sustainable future. Today there are many regional, national and international building certification systems that are set up to address this goal, including LEED (USA-International), BREEAM (UK-International), Estidama (Abu Dhabi), QSAS (Qatar), and DGNB (Germany).

Our Approach to Green Building Certification

Our experienced team has been involved in more than 50 LEED projects worldwide and are adept at identifying and implementing strong sustainable design strategies. We’ve worked with contractors just like yourself to help streamline this entire process. Our unique approach sees us partner with you on the frontline as part of your construction team, keeping everyone alerted to any updates to requirements. As well as offering you as a contractor, the very best sustainable solutions, we’ll also handle all the necessary paperwork for your green building certification, ultimately guiding you and your team towards the project’s goals.

Our Green Building Certification Services

Design Certification Management

We’ve worked on a vast range of LEED, Estidama, GSAS and DGNB projects so you can rest assured we’ll help you meet the sustainable design standards you require.

Energy Modeling

We use state-of-the-art software to and hardware help predict how much energy your building will consume. This allows us to pinpoint and implement innovative energy solutions, which will help you save you resources and operational costs.

Waste Strategies

We provide innovative waste management solutions and management plans, to help minimize waste, encourage re-use and recycling, to help you save on costs and operate more sustainably.

Water Usage

We take a detailed look at your project’s water supply and wastage to see how we can minimize water demand. We’ll suggest resource saving strategies such as low flush toilets and water taps, waterless urinals and more. By also looking at the possibility of using condensate water collection, dual piping and more solutions, we are often able to reduce water use by 50% less than EPA baselines.

Indoor Air Quality Management

Poor indoor air that is badly ventilated or contaminated by gases and air pollutants can have a big impact on the health and comfort of your building’s occupants. We’ll analyze the quality of your indoor environment to help implement Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) guidelines based on SMACNA Guidelines for Occupied Buildings Under Construction.

Renewable Energy Strategies

We develop renewable energy strategies for individual buildings, or on a site-wide basis for master planned developments. We begin by conducting a feasibility study to identify the most suitable technologies, before carrying out a full technical and financial evaluation to determine the best possible approach for your project.


Our experts can aid in designing buildings that maximizes the use of natural light. Not only does this help you save precious energy resources and cut down on costs, it also makes for a healthier space for your occupants.

Coordinating with Certification Bodies

We’ll liaise directly with the Certification Bodies (Estidama, GBCI, GORD) and organize and submit any necessary paperwork for you.

When it comes to the decision making process for real-property investments, first cost savings are often a priority over green building and sustainable life cycle creation. A perceived lack of information about the actual costs and benefits of green buildings has led, in some cases, to concerns about whether to make a higher investment.
