The facade as a contribution to buildings with LEED certification

Contributing to an environmentally friendly construction is one of GARCIA FAURA’s priorities. That’s why the company’s facades can become a key piece for buildings that want to achieve LEED certification, one of the most important in the world when it comes to ensuring that buildings are considered green buildings.

The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is voluntary and applies to both newly built and refurbished properties, of all kinds of use, even in entire neighborhoods.

It is a set of rules and requirements that certify that the building in question is sustainable, compatible with eco-efficiency standards, by scoring in five categories: sustainability, water saving, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources , and environmental quality of the interiors.

Along with an extra category, on innovation in building designs, a table is drawn up that allows you to obtain one of the four levels of the certificate: the LEED certificate itself, the lowest, followed by the Silver, Gold and Platinum certificates.

GARCIA FAURA can make a decisive contribution to sustainability in the building, especially with its façades. These are elements that contribute to the sustainability of buildings that result in the comfort and health of people in spaces of all kinds. And, in addition, with energy and economic savings.

The choice and design of a correct technical solution for the façade of a building can substantially improve its energy efficiency, both in thermal and solar performance. The combination of this façade solution with other value-added elements that favor energy savings can be fundamental in determining the degree of sustainability of the building.

GARCIA FAURA has specialized in the development of this type of technical solutions for facades, thanks to its team of specialized engineers, who work together with the construction engineers and architects of the projects executed by the company.

In fact, GARCIA FAURA has participated in the construction of several buildings that already have or are processing LEED certification, such as the offices of Diagonal 191 and 525 in Barcelona, ​​the Colonial Tower in Plaça Europa in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, or a corporate promotion in Selva de Mar street in the Catalan capital.
