Archetype Sustainable Design
We are building today shaping tomorrow
As one of the leading design firms in Asia, Archetype Group is committed to protecting our environment by incorporating Sustainable Design Principles into our normal course of work. Archetype Group has made a substantial investment in putting our beliefs into practice by establishing a Team for Sustainable Design headed by Mr. Jean-Francois Chevance, our Group Director of Design.
Archetype has, through its staff and its network of professional consultants, extensive experience in delivering certified green building projects. Although we have the technical knowledge to work with any recognized Certifying Green Agency, we have focused our efforts and knowledge on the number one and fastest growing “green” brand in the world, the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) program, LEED®, as well as the Vietnam Green Building Council (VGBC) program, LOTUS, in Vietnam, the France Green Building Council and the Green Building Council Indonesia.
In Asia-Pacific, Archetype Group also partners with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) on EDGE, an innovative tool that can be used to determine the financial viability of a green building project at the early design stage and is also a green certification system for emerging markets.
