“We have to get different professionals who understand energy, transport, water, etcetera in order to make sure that solutions and designs aren’t just focused for one particular silo area,” Pineo added, saying, “If you address issues very early on in the design stage you can do a lot more in terms of addressing energy efficiency through the design and materials of the building, orientation of the building and even where it’s located.”

The film is released, both on Construction Climate Talks, YouTube and on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
