Abstract

More focus is being aimed at “saving the planet” than ever before. This project intends to elaborate on this crucial problem by tackling one of the major challenges that contribute to the cause for concern; energy consumption and waste management in residential settings. Much of the housing infrastructure currently in place is far from environmentally ideal and even raises health concerns. The major problems include energy consumption, waste management, toxicity levels in building materials, recyclability of building materials and environmental impact. Through extensive research, we have constructed a solution to this complex problem. By combining a series of pre-existing technologies, we have created a more sustainable and desirable type of apartment complex.
