The construction sector has contributed, for decades, to the deterioration of the environment in all its phases, from the extraction of materials until the management of waste. The sustainable construction is an opportunity to revert this trend and to transform architecture and construction in respectable productive sectors, efficient at energetic level, that spare resources and adapt their projects to the territory.
Increasingly, there are more companies and entities that work in this line. Many of them offer resources, services, activities and formation in order to spread the principles and benefits of sustainable and bio construction.
Consult the activities that offer these entities and also promote yourself sustainable construction. And if you still want to know more, you can find information about masters and postgraduate courses offered by the Architecture and Sustainability Research Unit in Barcelona, a group of research linked to the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.
