The author is a civil engineer specializing in infrastructure, urbanism, and public policy administration. In spite of infrequent mention and debate, the topic of sustainable construction is a fundamental basis of sustainable development, especially in a country like the Dominican Republic.

Sustainable Construction in the Dominican Republic

Notwithstanding, in order to understand the importance of this issue, it is necessary to begin by defining first what sustainable construction is and from where the term originates. That said, in first place, we can define sustainable construction as construction that maintains a special respect and agreement with the environment and which involves efficient usage of energy, water, and materials that are not harmful to the environment in an effort aimed at the reduction of environmental impacts.

Sustainable construction, which is part of the triad of sustainable development, is based on a number of eco-friendly fepublica, as follows:. In short, sustainable urban development is related to three key verbs: The above principles have been translated into a specific strategic objective in Organic Law on the National Strategy for the Development Goals in the Dominican Republic, which takes into account the construction of decent housing in healthy surroundings through a very clear course of action: It follows that the advantages that this type of construction represents to the Dominican Republic, in general are:.

So, to some extent, builders work to make use of incentives located in laws pertaining to different fields.

These incentives are currently the most commonly-used ones in the Dominican construction industry, but this fact should not be taken to mean that they are used enough; an entirely different matter. Due to its commitment to reduce environmental impacts in daily activities and local communities, one tangible example of sustainable construction in the Dominican Republic is Grupo PuntaCana.

Through its businesses, the Group represents an important reference point for best practices in sustainable urbanism. Likewise, the Group has been characterized as being a pioneer in sustainable tourism throughout the eastern region.

To do this, builders need to break with habits and traditions acquired over decades of the current system of construction that has failed to take into account the finite nature of natural resources. This dominciana a change le industry mentality — and economic strategies — with the objective of prioritizing recycling, re-use, and recovery of materials in the face of traditional notions of extraction of natural resources.

It also implies promotion of the use of energy dominicanw construction processes based on renewable energies and products. Now is the time to begin the process of bringing various sectors together in a discussion that allows us to plan, compose, and present a bill to lawmakers. From the Republida of Urban and Infrastructure Studies at Funglode, we promise to organize working groups where we jointly address currently lacking rules and regulations that would bring about incentives for green construction and cement the tenets of sustainable construction in the Dominican Republic.

The ,ey or regulation that results from these discussions can be submitted as a legislative proposal so that it is debated in the National Congress. Previous Festivals Fifth edition – Fourth edition – Third edition – Second edition – First edition –
