AJB Design & Build are committed to using building techniques that will help build a more sustainable future
Sustainable building is about designing and building a built environment that works in harmony with the natural world around us.
There is an increased awareness within the industry that there is a need to design and build more sustainable buildings.
New builds are a great opportunity to produce highly sustainable buildings, by using both modern and traditional building techniques coupled with environmentally friendly materials.
It is also important to remember that existing buildings can be improved using sustainable methods which can help reduce energy consumption, lower carbon foot prints and improve our way of living.
AJB Design & Build hope that we can help have a positive effect on this desire to not only produce more sustainable homes, but also create a healthier living environment.
Passive building design
One of the easiest ways of improving a buildings sustainability is by using passive building design. This uses the passive energy created by the sun to help heat and light buildings, and also considers how the building will function in summer months and ways to reduce overheating. All this can be achieved by using orientation, glazing techniques and shading methods.
If passive building design is incorporated in the correct way it can help reduce the need for artificial lighting and heating, which will result in lower energy consumptions, which in turn will help reduce the carbon footprint of the building.
