How does Green / Sustainable building relate to the community?
Communities that are designed as medium to high density have an inherent green benefit as they reduce urban sprawl protecting some of our remaining open space.
Mixed use developments help reduce the number of cars and traffic congestion. When we develop communities where residents can work and live in close proximity to each other we reduce the time spent away from the home and family
Some examples include:
- High density housing - conserves natural resources
- Mixed use developments -
- Site layout of large developments
- Community rain storage systems
