Racional delivers Pre-Construction and Construction services using groundbreaking techniques and processes to overcome social and environmental challenges. Therefore, we are solution oriented builders. All construction projects undertaken by Racional include a sustainability plan, regardless of certifications. Identifying and reducing environmental impacts is part of our institutional practices, as is mitigating risks and working for the development of our stakeholders. Every project we undertake is unique. And from the sustainability standpoint it is no different. This is how we face the risks, impacts and opportunities presented by each project. We are always seeking the best solution.
Our Social and Environmental Management program includes indicators that measure
and monitor the performance of each project.
The program follows environmental guidelines divided into 11 themed areas:
Our responsibility to ensuring good social and environmental results is shared by the
entire team. This culture of sharing results across functions is increasingly being
fostered by the company and has enabled the development of various innovative
solutions at our construction sites and successful experiences are passed on to other
Racional Engenharia was one of the first engineering companies in Brazil to be certified in sustainable construction.We are prepared to deliver our construction projects with the highest sustainability standards as we hold certifications such as LEED, Procel Edifica, and Aqua, among other. We adopt value engineering and adapt each of our projects to ensure the desired certification in an efficient and economically viable manner. We attained LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for iconic buildings such as Brazil’s first certified commercial building – Cidade Nova in Rio de Janeiro – and the first certified datacenter in Latin America – Telefônica Vivo Datacenter. We now have acquired the necessary expertise and the trust from our clients to guarantee delivery of LEED certified projects in various segments. Our portfolio includes 10 certified buildings and another five currently undergoing certification.
