  Aluminium in Building Architecture / Infrastructure  
 
Building account for up to 40% global energy consumption.
The  most  energy  efficient  buildings  start  with aluminium. Aluminium components and designs optimize
  natural  lighting  and  shade, enhance energy management and support designs that make the most of the
  physical environment.
Aluminium’s unmatched recyclability gives architects a key sustainability design tool.
Globally,  building  contain  some  200  million tonnes of aluminium, which will be available for recycling by
  future generations time after time – an energy bank for future generations.
Aluminium’s  high  strength - to - weight  ratio  makes it possible to design light structures with exceptional
  stability.
The  metal’s  inherent  strength  allows  aluminium  window  and  curtain  wall  frames  to be very narrow,
  maximizing solar gains for given outer dimensions.
Aluminium’s light weight makes it cheaper and easier to transport and handle safely on site.
 
     
  Aluminum is the ideal material as it can be not only easily be fabricated but also given any kind of finish. It is also highly corrosion resistant besides being light and strong; therefore it is ideally suited for high raised buildings, public offices and other domestic and commercial buildings particularly in coastal areas.

Also it enables efficient cooling and heating as it ensures very good locking between frame and windows or doors. Further it can also be insulated wherever it is required. It is eco-friendly and fire resistant therefore competes very well with plastics and wood.

Saves forest wealth and maintains ecology when used as replacement for wood. It does not require any periodical maintenance as in the case of wood or steel and thus the maintenance cost will be very low.
