Following the design process, builder selection, materials and specification… there comes a time when construction will actually start!
In some cases you may not be living in your home while the works happen, but in others you may choose to live in.
Either way, starting the build in the right way can help with the environmental impact of such works.
Talk to your builder about some of the following, it could also save you some money….
Tips for saving energy and water during construction
In London, there is often not enough space for one skip, let alone a number of skips for different types of waste. If only one skip can be used, then the waste contractor can separate the waste offsite instead. (Ref; Breeam).
All these small actions above require just that little extra thought by you and your contractors, but they have a huge overall effect on the environment and can also provide financial savings in energy use and material costs.
At SJA we are passionate about this extra thought and consideration and we’d be delighted to talk further with you on this sustainability series of newsletters or on any specific aspect of your project.
