Sustainable thinking holds the key to future built environment

As the UK’s housing demands continue to soar, the sustainability of the built environment is becoming more important than ever and a more unified construction industry would lead to more efficient, longer-lasting buildings.

The contributors – ranging from the chief executive of the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) to the editor of Building Design magazine – discuss the role of clients, the plight of contracting, the upcoming election, and the trajectory of our cities within the context of a global sustainability debatehttp://www.edie.net/news/5/Sustainable-thinking-holds-the-key-to-future-built-environment/27031/
