Hello. I had a doubt regarding the materials for the roof. The intention of the design is to be sustainable, yet it is recommended to use the Zinc sheets for roofing which contradicts the entire idea of it. So my doubt is, if we can use the thatches from the branches of palm oil trees available locally as the roofing material alternatives?
ANSWER: Use of branches of palm oil trees as the roofing material alternatives is a good idea, but not economically sustainable.
The lifespan of the palm oil trees fronts is 3 years, so you will have to replace the roof every 2 to 3 years. Our aim is sustainable rural development. From the third diagram below, you will see that our aim is reached when all three (social sustainability, environmental sustainability, and economic sustainability) are accounted for in the school building process.
The Three Pillars of Sustainability (from thwink.org) The principle of The Three Pillars of Sustainability says that for the complete sustainability problem to be solved all three pillars of sustainability must be sustainable. The three pillars are social sustainability, environmental sustainability, and economic sustainability.
