Comfort from every angle

The Multi Comfort concept is designed to deliver every kind of comfort, in any kind of building, anywhere in the world. And always in a sustainable and economical way.

Thermal Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings keep themselves at an optimal temperature using very little energy. They’re neither too hot nor too cold – so we can function comfortably, whatever we’re doing.

Visual Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings bring the outdoors in. They maximize daylight to create the right amount of light for specific tasks – whether it’s reading, performing surgery or working out at the gym.

Acoustic Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings have well-balanced sound environments. They actively protect us from unwanted exterior noise, and enhance those sounds that we do want to hear.

View

Indoor-Air Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings provide a constant supply of fresh, clean air. This creates an optimally healthy environment for us and reduces the impact of harmful pollutants.

Comfort for every building & Climate

Multi-Comfort principles can be applied to any kind of building any kind of climate.

MULTICOMFORT buildings are designed to bring wellbeing to people today while preparing the future for all: they use less energy and resources, and generate less pollution and waste

We all need to do more to support sustainability – particularly when it comes to the buildings we use on a daily basis.

The impacts of human activities on our environment has been increasing steadily since urbanization began. In industrialized countries, buildings now account for 40% of our energy consumption – mostly to provide heating or cooling. But much of this energy is wasted due to inefficient systems or building design.

The bottom line is that, unless we change our building habits, energy consumption and associated climate change will continue to rise – and that’s certainly not sustainable.

Buildings account for:

Waste Generation Quote
Water Consumption Quote
Greenhouse Gas Emissions Quote

Adopting a more sustainable approach

To meet these energy, climate and resources challenges, higher performing building envelopes can make a huge difference.

A MULTICOMFORT building is typically designed to have a reduced environmental footprint: it consumes less energy and resources, and generate less pollution and waste across its lifecycle.

Building sustainably for the long term is a vital requirement of the MULTICOMFORT design standard.

It requires the building to meet the highest standards in terms of energy efficiency and to build on the most sustainable materials.

The fullest and most informative picture of a building material’s performance in terms of its environmental footprint can be obtained by it's Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

An EPD is a verified document that communicates transparent and comparable information about the lifecycle environmental impact of products.

All building product families developed by Saint-Gobain have undergone this lifecycle environmental assessment.
