This project involved the development of a series of mini-guides on sustainable construction topics including solar energy, water conservation, and life-cycle cost analysis. The London Borough of Merton wishes to provide such guidance to building professionals to encourage and enable green design in their design and construction practices. This assistance would help those involved in the construction profession to comply with the newly enacted Policy ST.1a: Sustainable Development in the Unitary Development Plan. The mini-guides were subjected to a multi-level, interactive process of review, feedback and revisions. The final mini-guides were presented to the Merton Council and represent the start to the Council's now expanding series of sustainable construction guidance materials.
