Name of the tool
HQE Process

Positive comments about the tool
The implementation of the HQE process often means a higher cost due to time needed for its implementation and for project management. This weakness could be balanced by money savings and reduction of costs at the design stage but essentially due to low operation and maintenance cost of the building.
We can’t deny that the implementation of an environmental management system and the choice of targets approved by all the actors contribute heavily to the building quality, preservation of environment and health protection.

Negative comments about the tool
Often contractors mention a higher investment cost. Its implementation need also a higher engagement of actors (time).
