Introducing Orms sustainability newsletter, ‘Platforms’ produced by our in-house sustainability group!
For this issue we have decided to focus on materials and highlight a few of the innovative products we have been using in our work. The selection of materials is a key element of building design and the choices we make can have far reaching impacts.
There are a number of questions that we continually ask ourselves before incorporating a material into a design; what is its impact on the embodied energy of a scheme?
Is it the most efficient use of this resource?
How does it affect the air quality of the finished spaces and the energy performance of the completed building?
We hope you enjoy reading it!
