Green home-building on the up

Green home-building on the up
Green home-building is becoming increasingly popular across the construction industry, with growing numbers of house builders and property developers seeking advice on the subject, according to a new report.

According to the Association for Environment Conscious Building (AECB), growing numbers of developers have expressed an interest in the area, with all sectors of the industry seeing a growing awareness of the issues surrounding sustainable building, edie.net reported.

However, the AECB highlighted the importance of developers making an effort to monitor the energy use of buildings once they are occupied.

"The report confirms that home builders are making attempts to create sustainable buildings, which is encouraging," said Chris Herring, chair of the group.

"However, it is important that they don't rely on green gimmicks in order to meet the challenging 2016 targets and it is also crucial for energy use to be monitored post-occupancy," he added.

Earlier this week the government outlined proposals for all new residential buildings to be carbon-neutral by 2016.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18401005-ADNFCR
