Sustainability

designacube ……… clever by design………. sustainable by nature

Our mission at designacube is to design & construct modular homes incorporating the three principles of environmental, social & economic sustainability.
We reflect our mission via innovation, affordable clever design solutions, energy savings and protection of the environment.

Sustainable architecture is architecture that seeks to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings by efficiency and moderation in the use of materials, energy, and development space. Sustainable architecture uses a conscious approach to energy and ecological conservation in the design of the built environment.

“the idea of sustainability, or ecological design, is to ensure that our actions and decisions today do not inhibit the opportunities of future generations”.

Environmental Cost – every building material comes with an environmental cost of some type. Careful analysis, selection of sustainable building materials and construction systems is very important. The way components are combined can yield significant improvements in the comfort and cost effectiveness of your home, whilst greatly reducing its life cycle environmental impact.

Sustainable Practices – designacube actively promotes sustainable business & building practices. If there is a “better way to build”, we investigate thoroughly. We align ourselves with experts in their respective fields and work with stakeholders who share similar views. We’re always conscious of the “bottom line” for our customers, whilst recognizing we have a commitment to leave the world a better place for future generations.

Liveability – our commitment to sustainable building practices and use of energy efficient materials mean the homes we create are healthier to live in whilst providing significant savings to the home owner through lowered utility costs. designacubes’ building style minimizes waste which is a huge boost to the environment via less pressure on landfill and lowered greenhouse emmissions.

Cradle to Cradle – our homes are built via a “cradle to cradle” approach meaning all of the homes’ parts can be re-cycled at the end of it’s life.

“informed decisions about materials and construction systems can significantly reduce the environmental impact of a home without adding to the cost”.
