Product Consulting for LEED, DGNB & BREEAMContact us
We support you in your LEED, DGNB und BREEAM projects
The requirements for products by LEED, BREEAM and DGNB are a big challenge for planners, construction companies and manufacturers. During the planning and construction phase we implement the requirements into your project and secure the planning reliability for products in terms of LEED, BREEAM and DGNB. Furthermore you profit from our network to the building product industry. With our product database www.greenbuildingproducts.eu we created a network for product manufacturers to fulfill the certification requirements efficiently. Learn more about this on www.greenbuildingproducts.eu.
A forward-looking perspective.
You remain always one step ahead of the competition with products and solutions from HOINKA GmbH: online product databases, online software solutions or the development of innovative building concepts – added value for you as well!
