CRBN stated that a good building design would consider energy efficiency, as there had been concerns lately over the increasing cost of energy occasioned by its high demand around the world.
In his address at the 2019 Federal Capital Territory Builders Conference and Annual General Meeting, the Abuja Chapter Chairman, CRBN, Odunmbaku Wilson, urged builders in Nigeria to always develop proper building designs as a result of their enormous benefits.
He said, “Buildings all around the world consume significant amount of energy and this has raised concern about energy demand and supply, rapid energy resource depletion and rising building service demand. This is why it is important to have a proper building design, as this will help in the management of climate change and boost energy efficiency.“
Wilson stated that the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, had been in the forefront canvassing for the development of buildings with adequate designs.
“The minister has been speaking on the importance and relevance of energy efficiency in buildings and in a broader discussion on climate change,” he added.
Wilson noted that the conference brought together experts in the areas of energy efficiency, sustainability, green development and facilities management to enlighten practitioners on the latest developments in the built environment.
