Our Sustainable Structures program features a customized evaluation of the environmental performance of the building and also prioritizes potential building improvements to address any areas of poor performance.”

Commenting on the Sustainable Structures program, Xavier Vital, Manager of the Ecodesign department of SGS North America, added, “The services provided by Cameron-Cole through the Sustainable Structures program are perfectly adapted to the needs of retailers and manufacturers to improve their energy efficiency and significantly reduce the costs of their operations.
