Sustainability in building design and construction

Sustainability is a very subjective term and very vast that can be related to many dimensions, like physical, social, economical, welfare and many more dimensions. We generally use it very small to very large contexts. However, when it comes to the development of the building , it is not a very small term and simple consideration as a small deviation from the perfection could impact the environment potentially. Statistics say, over 45% of the carbon emissions in UK are caused from built environments. Not only that, 73% of the domestic emissions in UK are because of the space heating along with the hot water provision. Building construction and demolition cause over 32% of the carbon emission, in the form of landfill waste.

  2. 2. What is Sustainability  Sustainability is a very subjective term and very vast that can be related to many dimensions, like physical, social, economical, welfare and many more dimensions. We generally use it very small to very large contexts.

  3. 3. DEVELOPMENT OF BUILDING  Statistics say, over 45% of the carbon emissions in UK are caused from built environments. Not only that, 73% of the domestic emissions in UK are because of the space heating along with the hot water provision. Building construction and demolition cause over 32% of the carbon emission, in the form of landfill waste. Reach us @ www.southern-assessors.co.uk
  4. 4. AIRTIGHTNESS IN BUILDINGS  Sound very hard, but yes, this is the statistical data that can’t deny. So, it would be wise for the owner of the property to think and consider making the designs at the earliest stages of the development after standard assessment procedure considering air tightness in buildings as the most important factor.  Yes, designers and contractors do this, but their knowledge and expertise would be limited to their experience and hardly can be related to the environmental factors, Reach us @ www.southern-assessors.co.uk
  5. 5. SOLUTION FOR BUIDING REGULATIONS  done like building regulations conservatory. And the following question in the mind will be, ‘is there any quick fix solution, or instant services, which can make my building to not to be a part of this carbon emission to a greater extent? Yes, there is.  There are a good number of sound testing companies, which can provide the energy performance certificates for the proposed or designed architecture of your building. Reach us @ www.southern-assessors.co.uk
  6. 6. ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN BUILDING  They come to your property and assess building energy performance and give you a clear picture of the status of energy efficiency in the building. During the new construction and refurbishment of the building that already exist need this kind of assessment.  The assessment includes many kinds of testing like building air pressure test, air permeability test majorly. Then the other testings like air pressure testing, air leakage testings are done as a part of air testing services. Reach us @ www.southern-assessors.co.uk
