Built Environment is a relatively new way of describing the design, construction, and managements of manmade structures. We have an all-encompassing role – designing our built environment, creating and managing the systems we need to make buildings habitable and responsible for ensuring that it all fits together to suit the community/people.
Cities are the largest consumers of natural resources and by far the biggest sources of pollution on the planet. The way we plan, build and use our cities is of vital importance. The opportunity for developing countries to create new sustainable cities vis a vis developed countries which are saturated; is a critical pre condition for a sustainable future.
