Sustainable Building - Net Zero Energy Homes
Sustainable building is the practice of aiming to reduce the environmental impact of a home or building over its lifetime. Sustainable building begins with design, and is carried out through the entire life-cycle of a project: construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and demolition. While most building is guided by short-term economic considerations, sustainable building emphasizes long-term affordability, efficiency and quality.
