We as architects have a responsibility to minimise our buildings impact on the environment...

‚Äč

We take sustainability very seriously and are committed to creating architecture that has a minimal environmental impact.  Sustainability is fully integrated into our design process, and we approach every new project as an opportunity to reduce energy consumption by making strategic decisions at the outset of a project, utilising passive techniques, building orientation, building form and site location. Environmental technologies and materials specific to each project compliment the passive techniques we adopt.

 

Wherever possible we design with materials that have a minimal impact on the environment and are very excited by the recent advances in structural timber technologies and are engaged in a number of research projects to encourage and develop these advanced timber construction systems. Construction accounts for 47% of the world’s CO2 emissions. We as architects have a responsibility to minimise our buildings impact on the environment by developing structures with passive design strategies, specifying materials with low embodied energy and moving away from fossil fuel energy. These 3 actions will lead us towards carbon-neutral developments. Faber Architecture are adopters of the Architecture 2030 Initiative to ensure all new buildings, developments and major renovations are carbon-neutral by the year 2030.
