In the last 2 blogs we got to know about the sustainable material Wood and Timber. But are they really, sustainable? Yes! If the company cuts down the tree and do not deplete the forest. If they are not doing so, they aren’t sustainable at all. Same applies for bamboo as well. So, check before investing in all those materials. Using FSC controlled wood can be both green and sustainable.

So, what’s the matter with being sustainable? A sustainable building is a building that minimizes the hazardous effect keeping in mind the future of the building.

A sustainable building reduces the negative impact of the overall performance of the building. It acts as a preservative of all the natural and precious resources that are now getting scarce, thus improving the quality of life.

Some factors that should be considered while designing or strategies that needs to be implemented are –

  • Passive cooling design
  • Active cooling design
  • Renewable energy system
  • Green building material and finishes
  • Native landscapes
  • Stormwater management

By 2030, 60% of the population are going to live in urban areas, so it is of utmost important that they have sustainable living condition.

Livability factors that needs to be considered are shown in the graph below. It is a big deal to provide accurate information to the concerned authority such as DGNB, LEED and BREEAM to qualify the building as a sustainable one!
