Full description

One of the principal barriers to the wider adoption of more sustainable design and construction solutions is the perception that they cost a large amount of money. Evidence collected by BRE and Cyril Sweett contradicts this assumption.

This report identifies the costs associated with a range of sustainable solutions for different building types, demonstrating that significant improvements in the sustainability performance of a building can be achieved at very little additional cost. In addition, this report also demonstrates that more sustainable buildings can offer major life-cycle cost benefits.
