A sustainable built environment

 researches the impact of various construction methods and materials on the environment. It offers consultancy services for healthy, environmentally friendly and sustainable buildings.

 

Envirology uses building biology principles for their consultancy services. Unlike many other "rating" tools, building biology has been around for a long time and covers all the conventional sustainability tools plus some others. It is a holistic approach to designing sustainable neighbourhoods and healthy buildings.

You are invited to read more about the 30 principles on the Building Biology and Ecology Institute of New Zealand (BBE) website and read a short introduction to it on our website.

“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

We take sustainability not only in an environmental context. We also consider the economic and sociocultural aspects.

 

Our work and designs are considered in a wider built environment context to create resilient neighbourhoods that promote amenity and diversity. Connections (social and mobility), transport, work, leisure, safety and cultural identity are important to us.
