Common questions

In most cases, just one – our licenses are sold per organisation, and vary by the number of users per license. We offer licenses for sole practitioners (1 user) up to entire enterprises (over 1000 users).

All GreenBook and Footprint Calculator licenses are floating and managed automatically. Similar to Netflix, you can invite the entire team but only logged in users count towards your user cap per license.

We can upgrade your existing license if your needs change. Contact us for more information.

Our Footprint Calculator User Interface (UI) is completely web-based, and no additional installation is required.

Foster + Partners is a global studio for architecture, urbanism and design, rooted in sustainability, which was founded over fifty years ago in 1967 by Norman Foster. Since then, he and the team around him have established an international practice with a worldwide reputation for thoughtful and pioneering design. The studio has established an international reputation with buildings such as, 30 St Mary Axe, popularly known as The Gherkin, The Great Court at the British Museum, in London, Apple’s headquarters in California, and Bloomberg’s new European headquarters in London.

The principles of sustainability are integral to the practice’s work: designing buildings that run at a fraction of the current energy requirements, or urban quarters that can support thriving communities, improving the quality of life in a city for all. Foster + Partners has adopted The Footprint Calculator software across their practice to meet their sustainable vision. Their initial trial of the software proved successful and the practice have adopted an enterprise licence to The Footprint Calculator software platform, and are continuing to expand their applications. Through trial, they have shown the flexibility and adaptability of the system to a variety of project locations, scales and applications.
