What is sustainable Design in Babui Eco-Resort management?
Designing for sustainable eco-resorts should by nature, follow the basic principles of sustainable development. It should be responsive to the constraints of the natural and cultural environment. Since some environments are more unique and fragile than others, there is no one single formula to manage the impacts of Babui Eco-Resort construction. The design should provide an opportunity to bring visitors physically closer to the natural and cultural values of a site.

The framework for the design should lie emphasizes on gathering information and knowledge that can be used to better understand the impacts of a development. The first essential steps in this process are climate analysis, locality analysis and site analysis.

Climate has a major influence on Babui Eco-Resort

  • Building materials, construction and orientation
  • Energy consumption
  • The nature of the land e.g. topography, soils, hydrology, vegetation and fauna
  • The feel, character and qualities of a place
  • Comfort and convenience of users

The basic information that needs to be gathered to design for specific climate types includes:

  • The path (vertical and horizontal angle) of the sun during the year
  • The temperature range
  • The annual rainfall amount and annual rainfall distribution
  • The wind intensity, direction and occurrence
  • The most likely direction of storms, cold or strong winds
  • The most common directions of gentle breezes

Locality Analysis
A locality can be seen as the catchments of a site. It might also be considered as an extension of the site. Potential impacts of the development should be considered at this broader scale. Locality analysis should be carried out to consider issues such as:

  • Identifying an appropriate site and the scale or type of development that might suit
  • Access to local resources and services e.g. food, building materials, fuel, labor, water sources and infrastructure
  • Access to quality environmental values e.g. natural ecosystems, local culture and history
  • Climatic factors e.g. prevailing winds, rainfall
  • The tourism appeal of the area

Site Analysis
There are some general principles to be followed when deciding upon the specific site for a structure Babui Eco-Resort

  • Build on the least sensitive areas, or areas that have already been subject to human disturbance
  • Site the development in an area with natural values that can be used to interpret the environment in a wider context
  • Consider the type of tenure and rights of access and use
  • Optimize the best available views without building on prominent points or ridgelines

Site Evaluation
The type and detail of information to be prepared as part of the site analysis will depend upon factors such as the type, scale and intensity of the development in the nature of site conditions. Therefore, the evaluation of the carrying capacity of the site will take into account

  • fragility or resilience of the site
  • availability of water and power resources
  • type of development
  • maximum number of visitors, and
  • Connections to different parts of the site e.g. trails or swimming at a nearby beach
