SUSTAINABILITY CREATING STRONG BUILDINGS

Confluence has always been committed to creating sustainable, environment conscious structures. We anticipate the need for a shift to sustainable design that is built for optimal functionality: As the ecology changes, so must current architectural practices.

 

Sustainability

The idea of sustainability, or ecological design, is to ensure that our actions and decisions today do not inhibit the Opportunities of future generations. Sustainable architecture seeks to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings. It uses a conscious approach to energy and ecological conservation is the design of the built environment. It is design with a conscience. Components of sustainable architecture include:

1. Heating, ventilation and cooling system efficiency.

Our designs and layouts ensure efficient use of all equipments. The designs are such that reduce heating in summers by blocking the sun and lets sun enter the habitable spaces in winters.

2. Renewable energy generation

We incorporate additions to our design that can further reduce dependence on limited resources and recharge the environment to possible extent

3. Sustainable building materials

  • a. Recycled materials
  • b. Lower volatile organic compounds
  • c. Materials sustainability standards

Research

To ensure that our design practices utilize the best and latest in sustainable architecture, we have a dedicated research team. We undertake a holistic approach to research, which is the incubator of innovation. We keep ourselves updated on:

  • State-of-the-art innovations in design
  • Building materials that are both conducive to environmental preservation and are cost effective.
  • New ways of utilising natural, renewable resources.
  • Design that is conscious of the surroundings.
  • Market research

We also conduct case studies on potentially ground breaking advances in this field. When we are entrusted with a project, we do not cut corners and our dedication to research reflects this.
