What do you need to know about eco/ sustainable building design?
Eco-friendly and sustainable building design is becoming a more common practice as people become increasingly aware of how properties impact the environment. Building designers and architects may well specialise in this kind of design work, and as such will have multiple options for you to consider. Do you want solar panels installed? Do you want your home designed with sustainable or recycled materials? Is there a way you can use the surrounding area to your advantage without damaging it? Remember that certain eco-friendly solutions can be more expensive, so do some research yourself and speak with several tradesmen before making a hire. Also consider whether you want your designer to oversee the project once it begins, as a specialist will likely have tradesmen they can recommend for the job.
Designing is not a simple process, so do not expect to get free mock-ups before making your hire. However, most professional building designers and architects will have examples of previous jobs that you can look over, as well as readily available customer feedback. The cost of eco-friendly or sustainable building design work will depend on the size and complexity of your project. Remember to make sure that your final choice is covered with professional indemnity or liability insurance, in case flaws in their designs cause problems later on.
