Sustainable Urban Living Environment Through Prefabricated Buildings

Zhiheng Li


The endless destruction of the natural environment and man's unbridled demand for natural resources has led to the spread of a series of environmental problems such as global warming, air pollution and land desertification. These environmental problems not only greatly restrict the development of the economy and society, but also threaten the living environment of human beings. With the change in people's living standards, people's demand for the urban living environment is also updated, and the sustainable development of the urban living environment is also a very important issue today. Some studies show that the energy consumption of building construction accounts for 35%-40% of the total energy consumption, and the high energy consumption of the construction industry is a global problem. The trend in urban construction today is to use prefabricated buildings, also known as assembly buildings, to promote the upgrading and transformation of the construction industry. Energy-saving and emission-reducing prefabricated assembly buildings will also be a trend in the industry in the future, and in the long run, the energy-saving rate of assembled apartments will be evaluated so that the degree of efficiency can be fed back to the relevant authorities to judge whether the assembled homes meet the requirements of sustainable development.
