Definitions (cont.) Sustainable construction: • principles of sustainable development applied to full construction cycle: from extraction, processing of raw materials, through planning, design, construction of buildings and infrastructure, until their final deconstruction and management of resultant waste • a holistic process aiming to restore, maintain harmony between the natural & built environments while creating settlements that affirm human dignity and encourage economic equity Du Plessis Mod 6 Ses 1
What do we need to support Sustainable Construction? Environmental considerations are incorporated into all aspects of construction. Construction decision-making process supports actions to minimize environmental impact, resource extraction, use of energy, water, materials, & land, prefers renewable resources over non-renewables. Construction process seeks to maintain and restore ecological diversity. Sustainable Construction Institutional Social Environmental Economic Technical The five pillars of S.C. Mod 6 Ses 1
Principles of Sustainable Construction Focus: • Local knowledge & experience • Good management • Appropriate techniques, including reuse of materials • Risk reduction
Exercise: Principles of Sustainable Construction Turn to the Module 6 Content Paper Section 3.1, The Need for Environmentally Sustainable Design. See the box titled “Key Principles of Environmentally Sustainable Construction” Discuss with your small group: • Which of these principles are integral to your organization’s practices? (Provide concrete examples of their application) Be prepared to share one concrete example with the plenary group
