Know more about Sustainable Construction!
This movie clip gives an overall view of the sustainable materials available. Design professionals could consider such alternative to help reduce our heavy reliance of natural resources like concreting sand and granite. For structural components, steel is a good choice since it is highly reusable and has a high strength to weight ratio. For non-structural concrete components, one can explore the use of recyclable construction materials (such as recycled aggregates extracted from demolition debris). Other non-concrete products like dry wall and metal cladding would also help to reduce our demand for concreting sand and granite.
