Ecospecifier's aim is to help building professionals including architects, designers, builders and specifiers, as well as keen homeowners, to shortcut the eco and healthy materials sourcing process.
Its broader aim is to help create a more sustainable physical environment by increasing the use of environmentally preferable and healthy products, materials and design processes.
Designers today need to be mindful of the upstream and downstream implications of decisions in an economic, legal and ecological sense.
A range of new standards, including Green Star, BASIX, The Building Code of Australia, NABERS and ABGR, are turning these drivers into tangible measuring tools in the market place.
