We have spent some time studying ‘Green’ buildings.

There is no doubt that long term savings can be made for minimal additional cost in incorporating sustainability features into the design.


For most clients this involves insulation of both the building envelope and services, production of hot water services, heating and ventilation, electrical control particularly in terms of the ability to isolate services to minimise power losses, use of rainwater and grey water and control of site run off via rain gardens etc.


Incorporating many of these features into a project will help to future proof the building and enhance the overall value of the property.


Green Star ratings will be a feature of the valuation of all modern building.


We are happy to discuss sustainability features and the cost of incorporation with your designer.
