The following should be taken into account when deciding upon the best type of Geosystem for the specific application:
Technical suitability for the required application is the first criterion to be considered when choosing a Geosystem.
The following factors should be taken in to account:
Comparing the costs of different Geosystems requires familiarity with the process and consideration of all the pros and cons associated with materials, labour and time.
The following considerations should be made:
Public and private clients and construction contractors are increasingly embracing the concept of sustainable construction: this results in specific tender requirements (see the Procurement Module) and adoption of sustainability practices and evaluation criteria (see the Sustainability Module).
Environmental considerations to take into account include:
The case studies provide examples of how the carbon footprint of different engineering solutions, including Geosystems, can be calculated. A forthcoming review of the CO2 estimator will provide a decision making tool to be used when comparing different construction methods.
