This calls for efficiency in technology supply and change in lifestyles in managing the type and resources present in a country. The usage of resources further depends on the environmental awareness, learning experiences, the value and availability of the resource, type of household and normative pressure. Property sustainability is affected by product manufacturing and assembly, building structure, maintenance system, waste disposition, material extraction, and replacement (Bulg, Leimgruber, Huni and Scholz 2009).
The 2008 financial crisis that hit the world led to weakening of the housing markets and vulnerable populations, and this called for planners to redesign programs that promote sustainable home ownership. The move helped to lower risks, protect the environment while assuring robust returns to investors as they are less prone to shortfalls in returns. The major concern is usually technology, ecology and green performance. This implies that social infrastructure should be able to satisfy the present generation while posing no threat to the future generation. Thus, sustainable property should enable human systems in realizing their capabilities without posing any social inequality (Lorenz and Lutzkendorf 2005). The increase in carbon dioxide emissions is propelled by the energy used by people in heating, lighting and running the daily activities. Given that these emissions pose a serious and adverse effect on the climate change, an effective remedy to this menace needs to be developed. In this effect, initiatives that ensure that homes minimize the use of energy through building of sustainable property help to combat the emissions.
Facilitated by the Sustainable Home Code, planners have introduced the buildings are constructed upon codes that enhance a greener way of living thus benefiting the society at large. There has been

The purpose of this research is to investigate the following: sustainable materials; natural ventilation process; thermal mass; facade integration; case studies. Sustainable technologies and sustainable methods utilized in construction can be useful for us not only in controlling the carbon emissions into the environment but also makes the economy a sustainable economy.
Through the research it has been the attempt to focus on the issue of sustainable housing. The paper gives some examples of Eco friendly constructions in United Kingdom. On the basis of this discussion the paper concludes with the view that the well-being of future generation should be taken into consideration by the construction industry.
Accordingly, our objectives as well as expected learning outcomes are: to create a plant mathematical model based on the prediction of the plant behavior running in two phase processes; further on, the heating and cooling loads will be calculated to estimate the energy consumption, operating coasts, and the life lengths of the system; finally, we will test the proposed plant due to the general procedure of CIBSE or ASHRAE guides.
The dissertation is an analysis of the findings and research on China’s property market and its viability. The dissertation primarily focuses on secondary research as it is difficult to obtain information directly from Chinese realtors. Important conclusions are derived from the analysis of the DiPasquale Wheaton model in China’s context.
Most people fear change management and strategic evolvement because of the possible risks and threats that they carry and, therefore, it becomes necessary to “persuade people that change will always mean opportunities” (Managing Change, n.d). We live in an age and space when the only aspect one can be certain about living is ‘change’ and most of the times it should augur for the good.
The UK is one of the major carbon dioxide emitters in Europe. Consequently the need for sustainable and low/zero carbon emitting housing, has become an issue of major concern for the UK government. Government started taking initiative accordingly and thus the concept of sustainable housing has been encouraged in UK.
Sustainability generates and maintains conditions so as to exist in harmony with nature (Web: "Sustainability"). Sustainability involves recycling of objects, planting more trees and driving less. Sustainability involves three columns or areas encompassing the ecological, the social and the economic.
The plan of action calls for an investigation that not only goes into the aspect of soil inspection but also has the capability to recommend remedies to contamination. The developer needs a highly reliable site investigator who has carried out this type of projects before and who can be depended on to neutralize the soil contamination.
of the greatest challenges of our time and averting the worst climate change is both a global issue as well as an environmental and economic issue for the United Kingdom. The threat from climate change to both present and future generations makes it a sustainability issue which
