Building Technology

  • Anthony Sully
Chapter

Abstract

My aim is to investigate the most appropriate means of prefabrication to eco-standards that will enable my house design to be made into a reality. I have openly relied upon a variety of sources varying from journals, to specialist professionals, and organisations connected with this field of work. I summarise the choices of construction and building services as well as focusing upon advised solutions for my own house design as seen in Sect.  5.4. In that section, I recommend metal roller shutters over all windows and doors as a security measure. It amazes me that, whilst they have always been popular in Germany, they have never caught on in the UK.
