This Information Sheet reviews the key sustainability indicators and how they are satisfied using light steel framing and modular construction. Sustainability, in the context of designing and planning buildings, is quantified in terms of various measures of environmental, social and economic performance. In the UK, offices and public buildings are assessed using BREEAM, and housing and residential buildings are assessed to the Government’s Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH, 2010). Similar sustainability assessment procedures exist in other countries, such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) in the USA. Available as a PDF download (Free).
