Construction and plumbing

The demand for sustainable housing is growing, with the government taking steps to prioritise environmentally friendly construction.

Organisations such as the ASBP are calling for change, stating that “we support a reduction in the unnecessary use of plastics and encourage the development and adoption of suitable alternative materials.”

Copper pipe has long been the material of choice when installing water, heating and cooling systems and will take an even more prominent role in buildings as we seek to reduce water and electricity use. Copper’s thermal properties, high reliability and natural resistance to corrosion makes copper tubing a favourable alternative to plastic pipes, which face growing environmental concern.
