We are looking at a changed world and we must adapt to it
Climate change, global warming, extreme weather events or whatever else one refers to it as, is not going away!
‘It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.’ Charles Darwin
Adapting building design to accommodate the changed world is an increasingly important aspect of new build projects. It’s no longer just about reducing emissions alone, designs must look to adapt to the changing climate.
BREEAM UK New Construction (NC) 2018 has developed a set of criteria which successfully allows designers to focus on solutions for adaption. There are up to 15 credits directly or indirectly associated with adapting to climate change which could help benefit your building ensuring that it can be used effectively far into the future.
Get in touch with Maxine Goodey, our in-house specialist, to discuss how we can help you achieve the BREEAM credits in a cost-effective manner whilst adding to the quality of the building design at the same time.
