Refurbishment to include Eco Design
Green Sustainable Eco Design doesn’t just mean energy efficiency. It also includes traditional, renewable or reused materials whilst also giving the building the ability to adapt to modern changing requirements and therefore avoid waste or unnecessary expense.
The carbon ‘footprint’ in producing an artificial material or a common material such as concrete or steel can be far greater than using a natural one like stone or wood due to the energy expended in the creation of the raw material.
We recommend the use of wood from renewable accredited sustainable sources as well as other natural green eco products.
