Presentation made to Environmental Professionals of Sri Lanka

833

Published on

This is a presentation I made recently to the Environmental professionals. I beleive that there is no difference between the architects and environmental professions. They both are custodians of our natural, heritage and cultural assets. Unfortunately some among both groups merely go for the money in it and I believe that the model in which architects charge fees need change. It should not be a % of the cost of the project but a payment based on how much of free resources (sunlight, wind, renewable energy etc.) are utilised in design and building and also what savings it will bring to client and to Mother nature in the long term.
I continue to sing the same song no matter what government is power or who does what. Sorry I could not be with you to make a presentation , but I hope this and the other presentations i have sent links of will help establish my thinking. Renton
