Eco-design – Ecological construction

Respecting the environment and ensuring sustainable Development are the primary objectives of eco-design. These ideas are easily transferred to the construction industry in particular. Eco-design revolves around carbon footprint awareness, biodiversity and the use of eco-materials in an aim towards better energy performance.
