Net Zero Homes or zero-energy building architectures are the green initiatives of sustainable living. With drastic climate changes and the pandemic disruptions, global ecologists continue raising concerns about the disastrous impact of high carbon emissions and greenhouse gases.
When we think of climate change, we tend to think only of warmer weather. However, architecture for climate change needs to factor in extreme cold spells as well.
There are many ways to judge the quality or relevance of a building, whether by style of architecture, historical significance, size, and so on. However, in recent years, focus has increasingly shifted to sustainable building. The era of climate change has led us to make green architecture not a quirky option, but a grave necessity.
Maybe you can’t add a garage or a shed, or shell out the money for an entire home renovation project. But you can incorporate loft conversions with interior drafting,
Contrary to this belief that transportation industry is largely responsible for climate change and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, buildings are the single largest contributors to global warming.

Whether you’re an architect, a home builder, a structural engineer, or a subcontractor, you must have heard about Building Information Modeling or been advised to opt for BIM consulting by someone earlier.
