‘Sustainability’ code relaunched by architects’ body

ARCHITECTS seeking to build in a ‘sustainable’ and environmentally-friendly way are being offered an updated version of a code produced by the architects’ representative body, the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS).

Says the RIAS, here: “[We have] relaunched [our] Sustainability Code. This comprehensive set of guidelines and best practices for architects and design professionals promotes sustainable design and ways to reduce the adverse environmental impact of the built environment and create a positive impact where possible.

“The code aims to help architects and designers incorporate sustainable principles into their work, from the earliest stages of design through to construction and beyond.”
