Regenerative design has the goal of producing buildings that have a net-positive impact on their surroundings – restoring or improving their locales rather than aiming for less harm.
Energy efficiency, reduced carbon output and sustainability measures have been targets for those designing and operating commercial buildings for some time. Now, with Net Zero – where a building emits zero or less emissions through reduction measures – the goalposts are shifting even further.
New technologies have allowed glass exteriors to reach new heights in energy efficiency.
Potential students have no shortage of choices for post-secondary education, and ensuring sustainability is part of the campus culture and design is increasingly top of mind.
