Building with Nature
A new benchmark for the design and maintenance of green infrastructure in housing and commercial development.
Building with Nature has been designed to support the creation of high quality green infrastructure throughout the planning and development process. Green infrastructure includes parks, play areas, nature reserves and street trees, as well as rivers, ponds and other water features.
Building with Nature secures space for wildlife and recreation. It also helps you to deliver green infrastructure which is better for water management, public safety, and the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. Green infrastructure is as important as buildings, roads and power supplies in providing the essential ingredients that go into making places work effectively.
Building with Nature defines what good green infrastructure is. We have drawn on the good work that already exists and brought it together under one umbrella.
