Sustainable Building

Sustainable building, green building or eco building is simply using resources (materials, energy, water and air) in smarter, more efficient ways so we can build homes that are affordable, warmer, healthier, cheaper to run and better for the environment and future generations.

Below you will find a number of useful resources on sustainable building to assist both building professionals and homeowners. We highly recommend you obtain a copy of our building guides on Sustainable Building and How to Minimise Construction Waste available from your local Western ITM store.
