INDUSTRY UPDATES


New buildings database focuses on facade retrofits
The Journal of the American Institute of Architects
Building green rarely means demolishing existing structures and creating anew—yet retrofitting comes with its own set of concerns. Among them: What to do with the building's façade, which can be costly and cumbersome to renovate and, yet, is a key factor in managing energy performance. FacadeRetrofit.org is a new online database that aims to give AEC professionals a better idea of what works and what doesn't when it comes to upgrading a façade in the name of energy efficiency.

This low-cost refugee camp architecture is made from sand
Fast Company
At the sprawling, city-like Za'atari refugee camp in Jordan, the average Syrian refugee is expected to stay as long as 17 years. And yet despite that time frame, many people are living in canvas tents that can start to fall apart in months. The U.N. is starting to invest in longer-lived prefab housing, like clever new flatpack homes from Ikea. And now a team of architects has proposed a more sustainable way of building homes, schools and clinics in refugee camps: Using local materials like sand and gravel, the design can be built by refugees with no prior knowledge of construction, using no electricity or water. If a family or school later moves, they can disassemble the building and rebuild it somewhere else.

Sustainable Building Designs that includes energy efficiency, carbon footprints, downsizing, design optimization etc. are all the buzzwords that every client will ask about. Sustainability has become significant, so much that even hotels are being rated based on the energy efficiency quotient.
