When our pre historic ancestors built a shelter for the first time using bamboo trees and coconut leaves to protect himself from sun and rain, he was starting to exploit nature for his humble needs. Apart from killing the trees they also disturbed the natural habital of the insects and birds in those trees and interfered in the cycles of nature. Nowadays, the situation is out of imagination, how much damage has been done on earth by the construction of various types of buildings.
Sierra & ECHO from the establishment has been sensitive about the subject and direct the client portfolio to Green Building concept, also known as green construction or sustainable building which is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and deconstruction. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort.
Although new technologies are constantly being developed to complement current practices in creating greener structures, the common objective is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by:
• Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources
• Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
• Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation
A similar concept is natural building, which is usually on a smaller scale and tends to focus on the use of natural materials that are available locally. Other related topics include sustainable design, green architecture, and energy efficient buildings.
Our company is always looking forward for the usage of innovative technologies which let the inhabitants consume the energy sources responsibly and to become a friend of nature.
