Green buildings are becoming more popular as people see the immediate and ongoing value of choosing “green”. Designs are considering energy efficiency, air quality and natural lighting. Designs also consider sustainable building materials and approaches. Our team has expertise in sustainable engineering and construction.
Kehoe Myers has been fortunate to not only be involved in composite fibre projects, but to also be on the committee for developing the Australian Standards for using the material in reinforcement.
Composite fibre is being used in many of Australia’s leading industries. Preliminary calculations suggest using composite fibre over steel will provide a 1 in 5 cost advantage over steel; and has a 50% less carbon footprint than steel.
We also have a keen interest in timber constructions that have many benefits including: lower construction costs and lower environment impacts than steel or concrete.
There are numerous ways your project can be made more sustainable. Talk to our Engineering team today about sustainable construction material and sustainable design.
