Environmental Building Design
The inclusion of "eco-friendly" design items should be incorporated into all projects. csa architects devote time to ensuring their knowledge of those materials and systems is up to date, good environmental design can be pragmatic and economic, and csa will advise what is achievable to suit the client's aspirations and budget. They can advise on issues of sustainability and liaise with specialist consultants to ensure the most appropriate systems can be considered for any project. The use of photovoltaics, ground source heating, solar systems, wind energy and natural ventilation can all be considered within the modern building project. These items can also be an advantage to assist sensitive planning applications.
