The future environmental impact of products, services and infrastructure is largely determined at the planning and design stage.

Design decisions shape the project building, its material, energy required to make them, the ways we operate them, and what happens when we no longer need them. Design has an enormous impact on resources, and it critical contribution in the continuing transition towards sustainability.

We are faced with increased energy and environmental regulations, a financial crisis, and pressure for change from customers and the general public - building owners have found sustainable building benefits their business.

Don't be mislead by the hype, building green does not mean sacrifice, it means build smarter, it means enjoying lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) whilst minimising the impact upon the climate and environment.

No matter how hard we try to ignore it, nobody can escape the damage human activity has caused to our environment. Everyday a new story of disaster unfolds - building sustainable means tackling the challenges head on today!

Indeed because of the increased awareness and continuing spread of green building, there may come a time, when green building is the norm.

Sustainable Development, and therefore green building relies upon three principles, Social, Economic and Environment, and planned developments need to weigh each factor equally. Very often literature and media will cite the need for balance, this is plainly incorrect, if we are to succeed with social needs, economic needs cannot out weigh environmental needs.

Like it or not, sustainability and energy are two sides of the same coin, energy knowledge is vital to solve the sustainability crisis.


During the process of design critical decisions that impact the operation of buildings for their entire lifespan are often made very early in design, and often long before the end user, owner or operator are known. It is important to understand, and appreciate this subtlety because retrofitting an existing occupied building is challenging, so much so that upgrades are never carried out.

Consider a conservative estimate of a building with a 30 year lifespan, the construction cost is only 2% of the total cost of ownership and it becomes apparent that those initial decisions are important milestones.
