Sustainable architecture is essential to sustainable development, a leading concern in present-day planning and design. Achieving sustainable development is crucial for the well-being of our planet and future generations. This involves balancing economic growth with environmental protection and social well-being. By working together and implementing sustainable practices, we can create a brighter and more sustainable future for all. Sustainable architecture is an essential component in this thinking model, which works to meet the same overall goal of more intelligent building and development.
We are proud of our beautiful corner of the county in Norfolk. We are advocates for the development of sustainable projects that not only contribute to our local environment but help support environmental efforts on a broader scale. Many of our clients have chosen Norfolk as a home, as a lifestyle choice. The benefits of environmentally friendly buildings, particularly the Passivhaus model, have increased well-being effects for occupants. The feel-good green product is more than just thinking you are doing your bit for the planet. Your physical health will reap the rewards too! It can;
1. Improve Energy Efficiency
2. Reduce Operating Costs
3. Increase Biodiversity
4. Reduce Waste
5. Improve Indoor Air Quality
Passivhaus construction is a methodology that significantly reduces energy requirements and increases comfort in a building through high levels of insulation, reduced thermal bridging, low air leakage and constant fresh air provided mechanically through a heat exchanger.
We are members of the Passivhaus Trust. We would be delighted to talk about using the methodology for any proposed building, new and existing, domestic or commercial.
The AECB Building Standard is aimed at those wishing to create high-performance buildings using widely available technology at little or no extra cost. We estimate that this low-risk option will reduce overall CO2 emissions by 70% compared to the UK average for buildings of each type. Individual self-builders and large-scale residential and non-residential developers could make a valuable contribution to a low-carbon building by meeting the AECB Building Standard.
