Sustainable Construction and the Built Environment

The construction industry in the UK uses many different materials such as bricks and concrete. Most of the materials and processes used in the construction of new buildings use a lot of energy to produce and transport, therefore emit carbon dioxide, which contributes towards climate change.

This section of the website will help students to access design briefs, activities and information that will enable them to make more informed choices about their own design work on the built environment.
