We can all work to make the most sustainable new buildings possible, and we should, but the impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions will be a drop in the ocean compared to what can be done by improving the inefficiencies of existing buildings through renovation and retrofit.
The Autodesk Guide to Sustainable Design for Architecture, Engineering and Construction has therefore just been revised to included renovation projects.
This online interactive tool provides guidance on:
- What decisions impact the sustainability of your project
- When to make those decisions
- What tools and information you need to make better informed decisions
Definitely worth a look.
