Common engineering problems

• Adoption of inappropriate standards regarding climate control, lighting and distribution of services.

• Optimised engineering solutions which may not be robust and flexible.

• A blind faith in technology tends to underrate the human factor and fails to focus down to the finely tuned needs of occupiers.

• Mechanical ventilation inappropriately designed in terms of rate of ventilation, efficiency, operating hours and zoning. Special problems occur with night ventilation.

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
