Sustainable building is a new opportunity to promote more efficient construction developments
According to an interview to La República with Pietro Stagno from Luz de Piedra, he says environmentally sustainable or friendly buildings called the attention of businessmen and representatives of the sector. Buyers expressed more frequently interest in this type of techniques.
In addition to complying with the environmental commitment, the cost of an eco-friendly house is competitive relative to a normal one.
To unify criteria, a group of businessmen and representatives of Chambers wrote a code, which contains the standards to be met by the contractor so that the construction can declare eco-friendly.
This initiative was born more than 10 years ago, aims to generate a positive impact on the nature and lower costs.
However, is not so far that the technique is endorsed by the Institute of technical standards and accepted by the association of architects and engineers.
The development of this technique is carried out by Bruno Stagno, who named this code reset, which means requirements for sustainable buildings in the tropics. He had also the support of the Institute for Tropical architecture and Carlos Álvarez, President of the engineers and architects professional association.
For compliance with this standard does not require the person concerned to invest in expensive technologies, you are rather encouraged to build national materials.
With Reset, the investment to build an eco-friendly building is almost the same as for a normal, said Alvarez.
Currently is used only by consulting firms for the design of houses both in urban land and mountains. Some of the precursor signatures are Bruno Stagno architects, Luz de PIedra and Terranum.
Terranum for example, works with modulations of block, steel profiles, aluminum, natural light and ventilation building on the direction of the prevailing winds, as well as the use of gardens. On the other hand, Luz de Piedra focuses on the impact to the ground, controlling the movements of land and vegetation layers.Share on Facebook
