What is eco building?

Simple in concept, complex in reality, eco building involves reducing the impact of buildings on the environment and on the health of those who live within them.

Eco buildings need not necessarily appear radically different, but they do add an additional dimension to the choices made throughout the design and construction process. These extend from selecting optimum insulation levels and the materials to be used, through to choosing suppliers and incorporating renewable energy systems.

Carbon emissions, rising energy prices, gas shortages, water shortages, flooding, heatwaves, deforestation, depletion of resources, increases in allergies and asthma. Such issues are of growing concern to many people.
