Create a high-performance building using widely available technology

The AECB Building Standard is aimed at those wishing to create high-performance buildings using widely available technology. We estimate that this low-risk option will reduce overall CO2 emissions by 70% compared to the UK average for buildings of each type – a highly significant result given the relative ease and low cost with which this standard can be met. Individual self-builders and large-scale residential and non-residential developers could make a valuable contribution to low-carbon building by meeting the AECB Building Standard.
