Team

Advanced Building and Urban Design (ABUD) is member of the Mérték Group, a leading architectural studio and engineer consulting company in the Central Eastern Europe (CEE) region in innovative and sustainable design and consultancy.

We have promoted sustainable design for more than 15 years as individuals, and our specialist expert team was first established in 2008 as a department of Mérték Architectural Studio. Apart from dealing with whole building and even urban scale projects, our team placed special attention on the optimization of building skins, the barrier between the exterior and the interior environments.

Over the past decades, we have been involved in several projects either as a sustainability consultant or as a façade specialist. During these years, we have placed special attention on the ongoing maintenance and deepening of
our knowledge. Thanks to these efforts, we can provide a wide range of state of the art services in building and urban energy engineering and environmental design.

We offer services from the conceptual planning phase to the realisation of a project, for project sizes from a detached house to urban concepts. Apart from designing new buildings in an environmentally-friendly way, we see a great challenge in the green refurbishment of existing buildings.

We use special analysis tools to evaluate energy and environmental performances on a building and urban scale not only to validate our own design projects but as a specific service for our clients as well.

Besides the commitment to engineering and our unique expertise, our main motivation in work is our faith and personal mindset. We believe that our work not only meets interests and aesthetical expectations of our clients but also serves the sustainable development of our environment. This belief and commitment drives us in European and global research projects where new directions and possibilities can be found.

We participate actively in the work of scientific and professional organisations that support the worldwide promotion of sustainable construction. We believe that every location is special with unique history, inhabitants and climate to which we have to adapt and humbly find the perfect solution for people living there, be it China, Cuba, Brazil, Oman or our particular region, CEE. This is why we work and train ourselves continuously because we would like to contribute to a more sustainable world by means of innovations.
