This site is all about helping you to incorporate sustainability from Concept Design, through Detailed Design, Documentation, and Construction, as well as encouraging sustainable behaviour during Occupation.
We also discuss concepts that will become the New Normal, ideas we follow for incorporating Sustainability in your Business, government Sustainability Targets, and provide Best Practice project examples and References.
We hope this helps to provide a strategy for addressing sustainability in your built environment project.
