This paper represents the ongoing study of theory and practice in relation to the development of sustainable buildings and the embedding of sustainable processes and features to minimise their environmental impact, and to positively influence sustainable behaviour throughout their lifecycle. This has involved an extensive literature review, an online survey, analysis of project documentation and the assessment of buildings via case studies involving face-to face interviews and questionnaires. The wider project investigates the development of five exemplar sustainable buildings; The WISE building, The DACE Centre, Sidwell Friends School, The Core building and The Genesis Project. Each have environmental education and the promotion of sustainable building practices as key functions. For the purposes and limitations of this paper only the WISE building is featured.
