(New) Green Sheds

RuGBC Green ShedsRetail, warehouses and factory premises are a fast growing and important sector of the construction industry. An increasing number are being constructed to "green" standards - LEED,BREEAM or DGNB. Many RuGBC members are working on such projects. Due to their relatively simple exterior design, they are often referred to as "sheds".

 

Typically these buildings are:
