You will develop new individual drawings where you will reconfigure the overall site layout to produce an improved environmental design for the site, as well as detail one specific unit. You need to incorporate a range of EBD elements into the fabric and layout of the unit (appropriate passive design methods, energy and water efficient measures, renewable technologies, waste management, etc). The incorporation of EBD principles must be performed to the site (whole development) as well as to the individual unit (which is a representation of all the EBD principles that were incorporated in all different units in your development).
