How we help
We can help clients balance growth with resiliency — achieving compliance with sustainable development certifications while reducing, or eliminating risks and protecting our natural environment.
At RDT Pacific, we aspire to have a positive influence on the world, so sustainability is at the heart of our work. We believe that delivering sustainable outcomes for current clients will make our business stronger in the long run. As project managers from diverse backgrounds, including architecture, building science, contracting, engineering and quantity surveying, we can assess and advise on environmentally sustainable design from all perspectives.
Environmentally sustainable buildings that use space, resources and energy effectively, repay their investment through many short- and long-term benefits:
- Lower utility and other operating costs
- Enhanced indoor air quality
- Smaller carbon footprint
- Compliance with government regulations
- Added value to properties
- Alignment with Corporate Social Responsibility goals
- Positive impact on staff attraction and retention
RDT Pacific is a member of the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC), and our senior consultants include Green Star New Zealand Accredited Professionals. We are well placed to implement projects that aim for a Green Star Rating.
We aim to fully understand our clients’ and their stakeholders’ sustainability drivers so we can encourage the adoption of sustainable practices and solutions in all stages of their projects.

Our expertise spans carbon, water, waste and energy, economics and planning and management skills ranging from advisory services to organisational behaviour.
