Sustainable architecture and construction are essential today. According to the AEC, sustainable architecture is one that takes into account the impact that it will have the construction during its life cycle. That is why the resources used throughout the process will be taken into account, from water consumption to the energy consumption of end users.
The main objective of sustainable architecture is to reduce those environmental impacts generated. In addition to contracting criteria for the implementation of energy efficiency in its design and construction. Always taking into account the comfort and health of end customers. All activity must be in accordance with the current legislation of the Technical Building Code (CTE), Royal Decree 314/2006.
GUIDE TO SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE:
Research: Like any project, it should start with an inspection of the perimeter and the construction space. This is an essential step to direct the project. Everything will depend on the natural resources available. It is also necessary to check the regulations with the local authorities.
Considerations: Who is the project for? Is it for an entity? Are you going to build a structure for a community or group of people? You need to set the intended use of that project at the start of the project.
Project Design: Make sketches and include a list of preliminary materials and their finishes. This is the time to talk to architecture professionals and sustainable products, in order to apply them correctly in the architectural project.
The lighting project: this is a step that should not go unnoticed, as it will increase the sustainability of the building. To do this, a professional team will be in charge of implementing techniques to take advantage of natural light. This will exponentially reduce the use of artificial energy.
