We Certify Buildings!
Credible and objective measurement for green buildings in Kenya & Africa
Our suite of rating systems offer tools for almost any type of building. Certification creates a universal platform for credible and objective measurement of green buildings. Each tool recognises and rewards environmental leadership and is a recognised symbol of sustainability achievement.
The rating systems and tools create a common language and standard of measurement for green buildings, promoting integrated, whole-building design.
There is a rating tool for most projects, from precincts to homes to existing buildings and interior fit outs and more.
The KGBS has invested and researched the development of each rating tool using market research and local context reports for each tool. Each tool is released in pilot form before becoming available as version one.
The certification process of each building is managed internally by a case manager and externally by the appointed assessors and/or moderators. Each certification is subject to these independent third party individuals who provide transparent feedback to the case manager and project team/accredited professional.
The certification period varies depending on the tool type (Green Star / EDGE etc) you are using.
