THERE has been a long ongoing debate on form versus function but advancements in construction and green technology are allowing property developers to come up with buildings and structures that are both aesthetically pleasing and sustainable in the long-run.
In the past, the idea of sustainable buildings was often associated with only energy efficiency, carbon emissions and material chemistry issues, while design elegance or style was placed on the backburner.
However, the industry has grown leaps and bounds and developers in this era are able to build not only aesthetically pleasing but also sustainable buildings, says Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia (Rehda) president Datuk Seri FD Iskandar Mohamed Mansor.
