B-ARCgreen initiatives.

B-Arc Africa Architects is a member of the Green Building Council of South Africa and plays an active role in implementing sustainable initiatives in our buildings. We have our own Green Initiatives rating system which we apply to all materials and building methods considered for the projects we are involved in.

We are of the strong opinion that there is a growing awareness in South Africa of all things green, but are equally concerned that capital costs are high and that there are many material suppliers who market their products as eco-friendly but are not truly so. We nevertheless believe that any contribution to a greener environment is better than no contribution at all.
