Sustainable building designs focus on creating living and working spaces that are highly energy- and resource-efficient, and are those that use recycled or environmentally friendly material for their construction.
The underlying goal, here, is to create a healthy and enriching indoor environment for occupants.
These spaces use renewable sources of energy, like solar power or wind energy with the ultimate goal of maintaining a low carbon footprint.
Sustainable designs also allow the building’s structure to integrate more seamlessly and naturally with its external environment; a feat achieved through the use of plants and other green elements.
In Australia, there are over 600 Green Star-certified buildings—a certification provided by the Green Building Council of Australia.

Sustainable building designs maximise your ROI
Sustainable buildings are beneficial to both the environment and their occupants. Here are a few benefits that come with investing in green and energy-efficient building plans.
They lower your operating costs
Sustainable buildings are self-sufficient because they’re designed to produce their own power. In fact, most of the building’s energy is harnessed by clean energy systems like solar panels or wind turbines during the daytime, which is then stored and used to power the building during the night.
The reduce potential healthcare costs
Sustainable buildings tend to have a healthy and cleaner indoor environment in light of improved air quality, better ergonomics, and optimal thermal conditions. In the long run, this leads to better health and wellbeing, reducing potential healthcare expenses.
They’re less resource-intensive
In addition to lowering your utility bills, sustainable building designs reduce your carbon footprint because it generates and stores its own power and can even be designed to collect and store water (rainwater collection), reducing the need for external resources.
With the growing importance of sustainability and the consequences of climate change, designing and maintaining green buildings is all part of the future of life here in Australia. With regulations on green buildings increasing, you get ahead of the curve with the right designs.
Why work with green building design experts?
While sustainability seems like an added layer to your existing building plans, this is not the case if you want to do your part for the environment and your community.
Eco-consciousness has to be designed into the heart of your plans and must be incorporated into most elements of your structure and layout.
For each building plan, whether commercial or residential, this looks different—from greater ventilation to passive energy designs, light, space and more.
When you work with experts with years of experience, this is the kind of custom building design support you can expect.
