Eco, or ecological, construction is building a structure on Phuket, Thailand that is beneficial or non-harmful to the environment, and resource efficient. Otherwise known as green building, this kind of construction is efficient in its usage of local and renewable materials, and in the energy required to build it, and the power generated while being within it.
Eco Friendly construction on Phuket, Thailand and worldwide has developed in response to the information that buildings have a generally negative impact upon our environment and our natural resources. Including transporting materials hundreds or thousands of miles, which has a negative impact in the energy required to move them, and also in emissions of hazardous chemicals from a badly designed building that creates, and traps them.
Economically insulated by incorporating earthbags, logs, stones, recyclables, bamboo and straw, eco-friendly homes cause significantly less damage to the surrounding environment.
Other Eco Friendly benefits include:
- Lower maintenance requirements
- Consistent temperature
- Higher quality air (and better health)
- Reduced waste
- Reduced expenses
- Off grid
Why Are Eco Homes Growing in Popularity?
Sustainability is a word that’s been used more frequently over time with reducing carbon emissions and saving the environmental surroundings at the top of everyone’s agenda. This has caused several homeowners to relocate from traditional bricks-and-mortar houses into various kinds of accommodation.
The Range of Ecologically Built Structures:
Many Green choices are available these days to those wishing to style and build an eco-friendly dwelling. Architects, engineers and builders worldwide are now using construction techniques that have been developed throughout human history, in a reaction to local environmental concerns and the physical resource opportunities available, in conjunction with 21st century technological refinements.
These range from rammed earth construction, which involves clay-based material mixed with water and then rammed into brick or solid wall form, suitable in hot and dry climates, to straw bale houses, literally using bales of straw since the core structure.Straw is a good insulator, is a capable material that filters the air passing through it, and unlike expectation, is fire-resistant when compressed. And it is low cost.
Other options are so-called earth ships, which use recycled car tyres filled with earth because the buildings walls, or Yurts or Gers, the semi-permanent nomadic tents of Inner Asia, that utilise local wood, wool and canvas, to literally live on, with the land. These examples is seen as development that has a low impact upon the environment, which utilise and merge with the local environment, and might be dismantled and moved easily.
Options that come with Ecological Building and Some Techniques
In more conventional building construction, it is how technology and building materials merge and create ecological resources which are the important thing to green success, in addition to using simple and easily available materials.
Like, using pulped recycled paper for roof insulation is a simple but highly effective ecological resource. The injury to human health from asbestos insulation, presented in rolls in thousands homes, is now well known. Asbestos also takes more than 100 years to decompose in landfill.
Other features of an ecological building might include:
- The varied use of solar panels for domestic warm water heating.
- Water conservation, possibly including biological waste water treatment and re-use, and the easy collection and recycling of rainwater for garden use.
- Low energy lightbulbs, which can last up to 100 times longer than regular bulbs.
- Cellulose insulation (like the paper in the above mentioned example).
- Non-toxic or lead-free paints and wood preservatives.
- Locally-grown and harvested timber from sustainably managed forests.
Be it healthy homes, natural homes, a tiny house, Earthship homes, off-grid homes, rammed-earth homes, straw-bale, or general homes which have been changed into a eco friendly home a massive selection of eco-friendly housing can be acquired for the growing number of people searching for sustainable living. For instance building, or turning almost any Phuket property into Phuket Environmentally friendly home is much less expensive as people may think, and no further expensive than investing in a normal property.
