FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

A new hub dedicated to providing education and insight on sustainable development has been launched.

The online hub initiated by Baharash Architecture, the Designers behind projects such as the Oasis Eco Resort and The Sustainable City, will explore various topics and themes on sustainable development. Some of the topics include resilience, inclusivity, urban mobility, liveability and building sustainably without the added costs.

“Contrary to common belief, sustainable design does not require an increase in client budget or construction costs. Passive design strategies such as orientation, density and form will provide the biggest environmental gains, yet these require the least financial investment.” explains Baharash Bagherian, Design Director at Baharash Architecture. “The key challenge however, is to provide affordable solutions that are holistic and address all the pillars of sustainability”.

As we approach Expo 2020, the push towards sustainable development is gaining momentum. In a highly competitive market, sustainable design can provide a unique selling point. It can add a competitive advantage to a client’s project, as buyers look towards properties with access to a range of desirable amenities, as well as providing minimum maintenance fees and reduced energy bills.

Ultimately the knowledge hub will be a testbed for sustainable development; exploring new solutions & strategies to facilitate the progress on sustainable thinking in the region. The hub will provide the following:

– Insight & case studies on sustainable developments.
– Lessons learned from working on sustainable developments.
– Research on sustainable design practices.
– Educate the next generation through the transfer of knowledge.

Knowledge Hub for Sustainable Development can be accessed at https://www.baharash.com/knowledge/
