BRE – Building for Change 14th November 2014

This week we’ve selected BRE’s Building4Change short video to help you understand why:

Integrated Design can deliver Near Zero Energy buildings

EU research shows that collaboration in the early design phase of projects is key to successful delivery.

  • "Sustainable Design” is now mainstream
  • Buildings MUST achieve very low energy demands via fabric and on site generation
    •   Source: EU’s Near Zero Energy Buildings Directive (nZEB)
  • This means improving the performance of buildings without increasing their overall cost
  • Integrated design (ID) advances the principles of collaborative working and partnering to achieve this.

  The video highlights key points in a recent report by Andrew Sutton (RIBA), Associate Director, BRE South West and Wales Low/Zero Carbon Hub Steering Group.
