Energy & Advocacy News
Planning construction that is green-friendly has become an expectation for architects and builders.
However, most buildings standing today will still be in use for decades. The challenge is to modify existing buildings so they are more energy efficient. The built environment is massive compared to new construction and bringing it into a green future, while managing costs, is a major hurdle.
The most cost-effective solution to this is green retrofitting older buildings.
