Building construction in natural and man-made environments involves the disruption of the place and consequently, an environmental impact that has to be controlled.
Although many recycling programmes include glass bottles, a high percentage ends in landfills. This is why recycling and reusing glass is a good way of reducing waste and landfills. At the same time you can get a durable and versatile material that can be used in many settings.
Sustainable building sets as main objective the reduction of energy consumption. Insulation is a key element in the design of sustainable building. A well insulated construction reduces energy bills by keeping warm in winter and cool in summer, and this in turn cuts down carbon emissions related to global climate change.
There are thousands of environmentally friendly materials available. With their colours and textures they offer a wide range of possibilities from where you can choose the aesthetic of the building. Chosen from the beginning, the different final components can shape the architecture and play the leading role throughout the complete building process. Sustainable buildings are no more regarded as cold and sober by common people. For many years, building technicians and professionals have been improving on the thousands of possibilities of the materials and making innovations in order to contribute to the ecological balance.
