It is important to engage the services of a quality building designer when starting out with your building project.
Design Sustainability of Your Project
Sustainability is one of many factors that is considered when planning and providing design work to a project. It is important that energy consumed by your home is kept to a minimum with environmental concerns on the rise such as climate change but not by savage force but by calculated, sustainable design efforts. A passive design is a key part of sustainable building design with the use of techniques to efficiently collect solar energy to heat your home and cool it through intelligently placed ventilation and the right insulation which is stipulated with the BASIX Certificate provided for you. Another critical consideration when arranging your layout is the orientation. With the western side of the building to contain all non-habitable spaces such as wet areas, storage areas, and garages is its aim. And the eastern side contains bedroom areas, that you can enjoy the morning sunlight in winter and block it out in summer with the use of shading devices or eaves calculated to suit.
Failing to Plan Is Like Planning to Fail
Even though there are many obstacles to jump through when having your project legally approved, it is still rewarding.
