I feel a good way of making buildings better would be to ensure all new builds install something that allows them to use renewable energy, whether it be solar panels or water recycling, the energy from the sun is essentially free, why isn't it being made mandatory for new builds? Also the UK has some fantastic home grown timber, i think more contractors should be forced into using UK timber, it would reduce our carbon footprint by massively reducing shipping costs and it would boost the timber industry in the UK.
