Everything you need to know about finding a Sustainable Building Designer

In today’s environmental situation, it is simply not practical to build inefficient homes, workplaces or other buildings. Buildings need to be “future proofed” and made environmentally friendly and one way to do so is to engage the services of a building designer that has good knowledge of sustainable design principles. Here is some information on sustainable building designers.

Building Designers and Sustainable Design

With the increasing push towards environmental sustainably and energy efficient buildings, more and more building designers are becoming increasingly well versed sustainable design principles and how to implement them in a building, whether it is residential, commercial, or industrial. Such sustainable design principles include correct site orientation, rain water tanks, grey water systems, using recycled materials, using sustainable materials, passive cooling, insulation, correct ventilation, solar panels, and so forth.

Using these in a building means that your energy consumption costs will be lower, saving you money over the life of the building, and also means that your impact on the environment, or your carbon footprint, will be greatly negated.

The building designer will design a building that incorporates the above things and will also prepare the necessary working drawings and documentation that is needed in order for the project to be approved by council and for construction to go smoothly. The designer will also make sure that they are creating a building that fits into the scope of your budget.

Hiring a Building Designer

When hiring a building designer, you should undertake the following before making a final decision:

  • Check that the written contract covers all areas of the project
  • Ensure that they are registered and licensed as is appropriate for your area
  • You should be comfortable with and able to express your ideas to the designer and feel like you are driving the process
  • Ask to see examples of their previous work where appropriate
  • Feel confident in their knowledge of sustainable design principles
