Energy Efficiency & Sustainability
Integrating energy efficient and renewable energy sources such as solar power reduces fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. A decentralized energy system allows for more optimal use of renewable energy as well as combined heat and power, increasing eco-efficiency. Microgrids are also able to operate using decentralized, autonomous control.
Preserving the past for the future
Adapting heritage structures for reuse with a new purpose offers a range of benefits including preserving cultural legacy and history, preventing the negative impacts of construction such as air and noise pollution, and offering communities new economic opportunities and growth.
As more and more buildings worldwide are being forgotten about or abandoned, adaptive reuse is the perfect solution to preserve heritage while breathing new life into an old structure for future generations to enjoy
