Environmental Product Declarations – A key requirement in external facade selection
In this whitepaper, we take a closer look at EPDs, what they are, how they work, their benefits, and the important role they play in design and construction.
Specifying eco-friendly and sustainable products is one way to reduce the impact of building and construction on the natural environment. With the plethora of building products on the market, objective and unbiased environmental information is needed to enable architects and specifiers to compare similar products based on their environmental performance. For this purpose, no tool is more important than Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs).
In this whitepaper, we take a closer look at EPDs, what they are, how they work, and their benefits. In doing so, we demonstrate the importance of EPDs in design and construction, and their positive impact on sustainable building, particularly in the context of external facade selection.
Metal Ceilings for Retail Spaces
While the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world irrevocably, physical retail stores still retain their resilience and lasting appeal. Ceilings impact everything, from aesthetics, branding and ambiance to lighting, indoor comfort, and spatial organisation, which makes their design integral to achieving a retail space that customers will want to return to. This whitepaper discusses the advantages of fully integrated ceilings for retail environments.

Since then, government-led audits have highlighted a widespread issue with the use of combustible cladding across thousands of Australian buildings, leading to calls for greater regulation and a swathe of remediation work across the country.
