In this episode, we chat about some of the things to consider when building and renovating to get the outcome that’s important to you. We talk about energy efficiency, water efficiency and the three R’s, reduce, recycle and reuse.
When it comes to toxins, there are a few key conditions you want to know about, including lead paint, asbestos, rising damp and mould so we go into a bit of detail about these and how to factor these considerations into your project.
