Commitment to Sustainability in New & Existing Projects
With our base in Jordan, we are responding first-hand to the country’s need to conserve precious water & energy resources, to protect sensitive ecosystems and to preserve its unique cultural heritage in light of fast-paced development and population growth.
With its leading position in the region, AJ strives to be a driver of change, raising the sustainability standard not only through continuous development of our internal design and project delivery guidelines, but also through active involvement with a wide spectrum of stakeholders in regional & global green growth activities.
We are at the cutting edge of best practice in sustainability solutions, as Board Members of Jordan Green Building Council (JGBC), and through continued participation in relevant industry events and representation on numerous technical committees locally and regionally. AJ is also among the few organizations in the region with expertise in ISO’s Social Responsibility Standard – ISO 26000
With all our project managers, planners, architects, engineers and consultants under one roof, our teams can work effectively across multidisciplinary lines to develop sustainability solutions at critical milestones in the project development process.
AJ’s sustainability specialists advise a wide range of development & infrastructure projects on sustainable design strategies, based on best practice in resource efficiency (water, energy, materials, waste), environmental & social impact and understanding of local/regional needs.
Our team is well-versed in regional and international sustainability rating systems with successful experience designing LEED-certified buildings and innovations in energy efficient water/wastewater systems.
We recognize the need for innovation and tailor-made solutions for each project given its unique environmental, cultural and social contexts.
Our solutions touch on the architectural and engineering aspects of a development, as well as the factors impacted by organizational management, systems and occupant behavior.
Guarding our Clients’ Interests: throughout the Project Lifecycle
AJ is uniquely placed to serve as an independent consultant and advisor to owners, developers and lenders at any point in the development process. These include commercial, industrial and mixed-use developments as well as infrastructure projects alike.
For example, we work with our clients to produce preliminary and detailed feasibility studies for energy efficiency & renewable energy investments - as well as water efficiency and other sustainability solutions - which include up-to-date technical, financial and environmental analysis.
We continue to guard our client’s interests by leading the tendering and contractor selection process, followed by supervision during implementation, commissioning and operation catering to the unique needs of each client and each project.
With access to AJ’s extensive resource pool of planners, designers, engineers and supervision staff, as well as trusted regional and international partners, we are ready to mobilize support for projects of all sizes including renewable energy developments from distributed to utility scale solar or wind power production.
Supporting National & International Sustainability Policies
Many countries of the region are signatories to international agreements and protocols relating to climate change adaptation & mitigation, and have strategies & projects in place to respond to these global commitments.
AJ has a unique track record of strategic support to governments in developing their tools and responses to these pressing issues through first-of-their-kind technical assistance projects. In addition, our team is well placed to support clients in the public and private sector in development of projects that address the impacts of climate change, reduce the carbon footprint, develop public-private partnerships and access the benefits from carbon markets, climate funds and international cooperation.
