Sustainable Building Practices (Part One)

In the modern day where environmental consciousness is on top of everyone’s mind and businesses continue to explore ways to be more proactive, the construction industry is no different. In the worldwide effort to minimize each one’s ecological footprint, construction firms have a huge role in defining the future. In this first part, we will begin to discuss what sustainable building practices look like and their benefits.  

Broadly speaking, sustainable business practices prioritize the preservation of natural resources and natural ecosystems. This means making active efforts to minimize waste, using renewable materials, and creating energy efficient designs. Being conscious of where buildings are being placed to minimize its effects on the local environment is a key component as well in broader urban planning. 

Energy efficiency is one of the biggest components. Some techniques include using solar panels, incorporating insulation, and having better building orientation can greatly lower energy consumption and not just help the environment, but also lower utility costs for occupants. Passive heating and cooling strategies are also great in reducing reliance on heating and air conditioning systems and lower utility costs too.
