FABRIC FIRST

The term ‘building fabric’ refers to the physical elements of a building (such as the walls, roof, and floor) that separate the indoor environment from the outdoor. The term ‘fabric first’ is used to describe an approach to sustainable building design that focuses on maximising the energy performance of the building fabric, before considering the use of renewable technologies. It therefore prioritises the reduction energy demand over energy generation.
