Design Guidance for Sustainable Development - National Parks of Wales
Working with the National Parks of Wales (Brecon, Pembrokeshire & Snowdonia) we have developed a guidance document for those involved in the development, design and construction of sustainable design in the National Parks of Wales. The intention is to provide information that enables and encourages sustainable high-quality buildings that enhance and conserve the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the areas. The approach to design adopted in this guidance document is based on those tradition principles of design which enable the production of locally distinctive, resource efficient buildings that are inextricably linked with their landscape.
Building a future for Wales - A strategy for sustainable housing
This work forms part of the WWF's One Million Sustainable Homes campaign (OMSH) which sees WWF working with government, industry and consumers with the aim to move sustainability from the fringes to the mainstream of UK housing.
Building a Future for Wales: A Strategy for Sustainable Housing was prepared by CRiBE and addresses such challenges as minimising waste and carbon emissions and looks at the issues involved in making homes more efficient in terms of their use of energy, water and materials.
The research outputs for this guide will be incorporated into the Caerphilly Sustainable Design and Construction policy guidelines.
Construction Waste Minimisation - Good Practice Guide
The guide was prepared by CRiBE on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government. The overall aim of the guide is to promote awareness in the building construction industry regarding best practice to minimise waste at the various stages of a building project, thereby reducing the amount, and environmental impact, of waste generated. The guide provides practical help on managing and reducing waste at the briefing, design, specification and site operation stages and will be particularly useful on small and medium sized building projects.

Construction Knowledge Wales
The KEF funded Sustainable Construction Knowledge Wales Technology Transfer Network has been formed by key research centres within Wales in collaboration with several key industry players.
The Network is designed to provide industry the opportunity to steer the research agenda to their specific problems, as well as highlighting where research is useful and needed. Academics have a good opportunity to provide industry with information on products and services on the horizon, therefore identifying new opportunities and helping to promote sustainable development within the industry.
