About Us

ABUD is a consultancy firm empowered by engineers, architects and researchers specialised in sustainable building and urban design.

We offer a wide range of services to government and municipal stakeholders, architectural and design studios, investors and developers. We believe in practical and customised solutions that allow our clients to make the optimal decisions and see their resources and options clearly.

We provide support from the conceptual planning phase to the realisation of a project, from the scale of a detached house to urban concepts, from building envelope to smart city strategies.

Apart from designing new buildings in an environmentally-friendly way, we see a great challenge in the green refurbishment of existing buildings.

We participate in international Research & Development projects and cooperate with scientific and professional organisations to support the progress and worldwide promotion of sustainable building and urban design.
