which are presented to the client for discussion.
Those sketches might be revised a few times until
the client is happy. The designer then draws up
accurate and complete design drawings for the
client and for council approval. They will include
plans, elevations and sectional views and may
also include a model, three dimensional drawings
and detailed drawings.

WHAT IS ECO-DESIGN?
Developed by the Centre for
Design at RMIT University,
WSP Environmental and
leading industry experts,
What is Eco-design? provides
designers with relevant,
practical information and
quick reference guides.
It is important to emphasise
that
eco-design is not about
dismissing the fundamental
principles of design simply in
favour of environmental
gains. Positive environmental
outcomes can be achieved
during the design stage to
ensure the best performance
or result can be delivered
over the long term without
compromising form or
function.
