Are you planning to buy, remodel, renovate, or restore a home, or make energy-saving improvements?
Building offers a unique opportunity to exercise your design skills and creativity. Yet construction work also means having to make decision after decision, for a period of weeks or even months. A sustainability analysis of your construction project can help to ensure that those decisions remain a pleasure, and not something that you are forced into.
Building sustainably means coordinating the three dimensions of sustainable development in a way that works for you. A sustainability strategy creates a harmonious balance between the needs of those living in the home, the opportunities to make the home more environmentally friendly, and cost-effectiveness considerations. A matrix supports decisions at the planning and work stages.
A sustainability strategy saves you time, money, energy and stress.
