SUSTAINABILITY IN PRACTICE

How will Sustainability affect YOUR practice?

sustainability_wide.pngIn these frenetic days for environmentalism, sustainability has become a key issue affecting the design and architecture industries.

While the Government’s ambitions to ensure a greener future are clear, the associated policies and legislation may be less so. The impact of the legislation relating to sustainable design, ‘green’ issues, and energy has been huge and is undoubtedly going to increase in the future. But how exactly have architects been affected? To what extent has practice changed? What in particular has worked? And where should your main efforts now be focused?

These 2 exclusive ‘Sustainability in Practice’ guides are brought to you by The Architects’ Journal and really are must-reads for architecture professionals who want to learn and develop their skills and techniques in the current sustainability climate.

Part 1

The first provides essential information and expert advice on best practice in sustainable design, including briefings on government policy, the latest groundbreaking projects, working details, case studies and new products.

With a special in-depth interview with Paul King, Chief Executive of the UK Green Building Council, the guide explains his plans for the organisation, and gives an exclusive insight into the impacts of sustainability policies.

Part 2

The second part looks at how fundamental practice changes such as working with engineers early in the design process can lead to greener projects.

This guide features a special report from Terry Dix, a director at Arup which outlines the new “Energy Performance Certificate” legislation and what it will mean for you as an architect and your practice.
