Findings: From the assessment tools five (5) most used elements were identified which are very important to sustainable design. Application/Improvement: In conclusion sustainable design will not be effective if any of the five (5) elements is eliminated, because it shows that for design to be effectively sustainable the 5 elements need to be included.
