It’s no longer news that our climate is changing…but for worse. The impact of these changes on agriculture, wildlife and general standard of living is very hazardous. The question is: should man stop building or any form of construction? That would equally mean living a more stressful life. What then is the solution? Green building is the solution.
Our current life style practices are a major contributor to climate change as well as carbon.
What’s the Impact of Carbon?
Nine hundred billion feet of buildings will be newly constructed or renovated by 2030, according to Architecture 2030. And buildings are a major contributor to carbon emission due to their use of fossil fuels during operations. In other words, cities and urban areas are responsible for at least 75 percent of carbon emissions. This means that environmental damages will only progress if these buildings continued to be run in the traditional manner.
Fortunately, some companies are starting to consider adopting greener initiatives due to increasing awareness of the hazards that buildings emit into the atmosphere. Cities worldwide are investing in climate actions that will reduce these hazards. This includes “Smart City” initiatives to better manage existing infrastructure, zero waste, zero waste policies, alternative energy sources and researching the potential of developing net zero buildings.
More Energy Efficiency
Building with insulated panels will help to reduce our current environmental hazards. One of the key advantages of building with insulated panels is more energy efficiency.
Insulated panels are affordable. You have a low cost of maintenance in the long run due to reduced cost of power.
Faster Build Program
Shorter time is required to complete a building program. This means less overhead cost for security, temporary accommodation etc.
Insulated panels have light weight which makes them very easy to assemble. However, they are also noted for their superior strength which makes them withstand harsh climate and weather conditions.
