Environmental certifications for existing properties

Environmental certification develops the maintenance functions, interior conditions, sustainability and value of your property.

Let’s create together new operating methods and practices for your property, which will develop operations in a more environmentally friendly direction.

The environmental certificate is a validated third-party quality stamp of environmental efficiency of a property.

We help you choose the most suitable certificate and the desired quality level and develop the most efficient, affordable and best solutions for the quality of your property. Our certification process begins with a comprehensive pre-survey that identifies the site’s objectives and potential environmental rating level. Throughout the certification process, our experts support and guide the fulfillment of the criteria.

Raksystems GBP has been responsible for most of the environmental classifications made in Finland. All of them have reached or exceeded the desired certification level. Green Building Partners Oy has been part of the Raksystems Group since 2020.

WELL certification is for the wellbeing of a building.

WELL certification

At the heart of WELL certification are the health and well-being of property users. By investing in the well-being and comfort of users, the company’s attractiveness and productivity can also be improved.

In addition to the technical characteristics of the space, the WELL certification of existing facilities also assesses the organisation’s performance from the perspective of well-being. We have WELL AP qualified experts and the country’s first WELL projects underway.

As the first Finnish GBCI-authorized operator, we have also expanded our service offering to perform WELL Performance Testing audits. The WELL Performance Testing audit consists of a comprehensive certification of indoor conditions. It includes e.g. measurements of air quality, thermal conditions, water quality, lighting and spatial acoustics. The audit also includes laboratory tests of air and water quality. These tests, together with on-site measurements, ensure that the requirements of the WELL criteria are met. With audits, we can flexibly and domestically offer the entire WELL certification process, from pre-survey and project management to auditing.
