Values you should live & breathe

Our company values shape our EDGE culture and guide the way we do business. These values represent who we are, what we believe in and how we work together as a team. We like to think of these values as the definition of what makes our company and our people unique.

Build a better world

Our vision is simple: we want to build a better world. In order to do so, we have to create the best buildings in the world by excelling in our fields of excellence: sustainability, wellbeing, design and technology.

Service our ultimate customer: the resident

We love our work – the art and science of building buildings – but we must never forget that everything starts with the people and their needs. Residents are our ultimate customers and we aim to serve them in the best possible way. 

Think big, bold and distort reality

We believe that the best way to predict the future is to shape it ourselves. We thrive on innovation and challenge prevailing assumptions to disrupt the status quo. 

Be agile and biased for action

The world moves at an unprecedented speed. In order to keep up, we must be agile, move quickly and adapt easily. We make fast decisions and act accordingly. 

Attract, develop and retain exceptional talent

We accept only A-players and do everything to attract, keep and develop them. They raise the performance bar for all of us and inspire everyone else to higher standards of personal and professional development.

Serve our high-performance team

We believe that the team is the star in our company, and we want to win the World Cup as a team. We get further by going together, by treating each other with respect, and by supporting each other whenever possible.

Be honest and transparent

We believe in honesty and transparency as a means of bringing out the best in everyone. We thus demand a culture of constant, constructive feedback that will enable each of us to grow and develop. 

Have an ownership mindset

We believe in the power of entrepreneurial spirit and an ownership mindset: behaving as if you were the owner. This means always acting in the company’s best interest – not that of yourself or your team. 

Strive for excellence

We know that success is ultimately based on amazing execution, thus we cannot accept anything less than the highest standards. We act pragmatically when we need to be fast but action-bias is not an excuse for bad execution. 

Get it done

At the end of the day, we are only successful and impactful when we get things done. This is why we focus radically on what matters the most and beware of shiny distractions. We focus on solutions, not problems.
