Acting with environmental responsibility and awareness, Renaissance Construction has knew the negative impacts of the structures built on environmental and human health such as excessive consumption of energy, water and materials and emissions of various greenhouse gases. Renaissance Construction, adopting various strategies to avoid possible effects of its projects on the environment and human health, has attached great importance to design, construct and operate its projects in accordance with the “Green Building” principles.

As being a leader in its sectors; Renaissance Construction has also taken pioneering and innovative steps in the regions where it operates with the importance given to sustainability and environmental health through undertaking various projects awarded by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification; that is one of the most important certifications in the field of environment issued by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

Through designing with sustainable design principles, supplying environmentally friendly and re-cycled materials, utilizing sustainable technologies and constructing with green building principles, some of the projects of Renaissance Construction, which have been awarded by LEED certification by USGBC, are as follows:

  • Renaissance Pravda, the first and only office building of Russia to be awarded with the LEED Gold Certificate of Russia
  • TED Renaissance College, the first private school of Turkey to be awarded with the LEED Gold Certificate
  • The A-class office project, Renaissance Tower, the first high-rise building of Turkey that has received the LEED Platinum Certificate

Renaissance Construction has also been conducting various studies with its project participants in the fields such as water and energy consumption, material usage, waste management and indoor air quality. The contexts of its studies, which have been continuously improved and within which innovative solutions are incorporated, are defined as follows:


  • Developing strategies about prevention of construction pollution
  • Measuring and minimizing the heat island effect

Renaissance Construction has been utilizing Building Information Modelling (BIM) system since the beginning of the 21st century as part of its strategic plan. Having over 100 architectures and engineers in its teams, Renaissance Construction has two BIM centers located in St. Petersburg, Russia and Istanbul, Turkey. Through the incorporation of BIM system to the design and project management, projects are managed in a more timely manner, the quality of process and products are enhanced, time and cost overruns are minimized, quantity take-offs and project costs are more accurately estimated, and project information are more effectively shared among all project participants.

With designing, utilizing and managing project components as in the form of “intelligent objects” incorporating their “information”, Renaissance BIM team has been supporting various project phases and project participants involved in project value chain as well as has more effectively managed design and construction with the 4D and 5D building models having rich and intelligent building data.
