Element Sections

Each building element included in the Green Guide has its own section. Some of the elements have been subdivided into particular types of specification for ease of use. For example, the section on the element "Non-Loadbearing Internal Walls" has been subdivided into three subsections:

  • Framed Partitions
  • Masonry Partitions
  • Proprietary and Demountable Partitions

Each section on a building element includes:

  • A description of the functional unit
  • Further description, where relevant
  • Table showing applicability to BREEAM, Ecohomes and Code for Sustainable Homes, if appropriate
  • Element sub-categories linked to ratings tables
