This chapter covers the practical steps that can be used to ensure that the SLV (sustainable Life Value) of a design is optimised. It covers developments and ideas in material sourcing, efficient material usage, design for minimum lifetime energy consumption, ease of maintenance and prolonged life. It also considers end of life disposal within the parameters of the waste hierarchy.
