LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, December 14, 2017 / -- Building construction companies in the UK are increasingly using green construction techniques to reduce construction costs and erect energy- efficient buildings. Green construction refers to the practice of using sustainable building materials and construction processes to create buildings with minimal environmental impact. According to the World Green Building Trends Survey, about 51% of construction firms in the UK were involved in green construction projects in 2015.
Sustainable construction materials such as natural paints and steel beams made from recycled material are being widely used in the UK. The UK industry is also a leader in the use of other green construction techniques such as cross-ventilation for a more natural environment, green construction software such as Construction Suite to ensure green compliance, and management tools like Green Globes.
Systems of certification, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), help construction companies in the UK to develop high-performance, sustainable residential and commercial buildings. Certification offers a variety of benefits, including tax deductions, and so encourages green practices.
Green construction leads to marketing opportunities in the UK because demand there for new homes and commercial premises, like that of Europe more widely, is responsive to environmental concerns. The UK’s current housing shortage and government policies to address it mean that the building market there is predicted to grow at 13.6%, Brexit or no Brexit, the fastest of any big economy. Regulations and consumer preferences mean that much of this construction will be green in character.
