Eco-design – Ecological construction
Respecting the environment and ensuring sustainable Development are the primary objectives of eco-design. These ideas are easily transferred to the construction industry in particular. Eco-design revolves around carbon footprint awareness, biodiversity and the use of eco-materials in an aim towards better energy performance.
By conducting analysis on the lifecycle of buildings, the group is developing tools that can refine the choice of construction products, aided by using a model. Bouygues Construction is currently working on a promising project which involves “green brickwork” made from recycled raw materials.
