Why Green Building - Know all about sustainable building

Know all about sustainable building

Do you know why on this day you hear everyone talking about green buildings? So many people focus on green building today. But now the question arises what exactly is green building? In this article, you will get to know what it is, why you should consider it, and what the goals of a green building are. In our society’s increasing concern for the environment, It’s not surprising that green building continues to grow in popularity. If we talk about green building it is a building project that allows you to preserve most of the natural environment around the project site, while still being able to produce the building that is going to serve a purpose.

With the help of green building construction or operation, it reduces or eliminates negative impact, and it will create a positive impact on our climate and natural environment.

Importance of Green Building:

The most important benefit of green building is that it protects our environment. It protects our climate and overall ecosystem by reducing water use and energy sources that pollute our environment, such as coal and carbon dioxide discharged into the atmosphere.

One of the greatest benefits of a green architect is energy efficiency is a primary goal in building design. They need to develop structures that derive their energy from natural sources – such as the sun, wind, and water – which is extremely beneficial to the environment, protecting the ecosystem from the pollution which is associated with non-renewable sources (such as oil and coal). It has an added benefit: if we talk about non-renewable energy sources it is not only toxic but costly also.

Green building features
  • It will help in airtightness and vapor barrier in building walls and surface.
  • Solar heat gains a coefficient amount of solar radiation that enters through the glass and releases heat inside a building. If the SHGC is lower then less solar heat is transmitted now it cooler the building. It reduces the electricity cost because air-conditioning systems don't have to do all the work.
  • If we talk about daylight-controlled lighting systems, this type of lighting system has sensors that can detect daylight. During the day the sensor switches off the lights since there is enough light from the sun and when the sun sets, the system will switch the lights on. Like this, the use of artificial lighting during the daytime is reduced.

Sustainable building design

For keeping the building sustainable, we need to design it for better performance from every angle. We try to help our clients by creating a building that is efficient with resources, affordable to build and operate, delightful to inhabit and appropriate to their context. We have long promoted sustainable solutions through which we integrated thinking by bringing together all the building designers and technical specialists needed to shape a new building.

How do you create a building sustainably?

These are essential elements that make your building sustainable

By taking an intelligent approach. Minimising energy use in all stages of a building's life-cycle, making new and renovated buildings more comfortable and less expensive to run, and helping building users learn to be efficient too.

Safeguarding water resources: Need to explore ways to improve drinking and wastewater efficiency and management, harvesting water for safe indoor use in innovative ways, and generally minimising water use in buildings.

Minimising waste and maximising reuse: Try to engage building users in reuse and recycling.

Promoting health and wellbeing.

Keeping our environment green.

Creating resilient and flexible structures.

What are the 7 components of green building?

Now let's talk about the components of green building. 7 components of green building

  • Life cycle assessment.
  • Siting and structure design efficiency.
  • Energy efficiency.
  • Water efficiency.
  • Materials efficiency.
  • Indoor environmental quality enhancement.
  • Waste reduction.

How can we make our building green?

With the help of this point you will make your building green:

  • While taking an intelligent approach, integrating renewable and low-carbon technologies to supply buildings’ energy needs, once their design has maximised inbuilt and natural efficiencies.
  • Safeguarding water resources.
  • For minimising waste and maximising reuse, use fewer, more durable materials and generating less waste, as well as accounting for a building’s end of life stage by designing for demolition waste recovery and reuse.
  • Jawaharlal Nehru Bhawan, New Delhi4. Promoting health and well-being needs to ensure people are comfortable in their everyday environments, creating the right indoor temperature through passive design or building management and monitoring systems.ITC Green Centre, Gurgaon
  • For keeping our environment green we need to look for ways we can make our urban areas more productive, bringing agriculture into our cities.
  • Creating resilient and flexible structures.
  • Connecting communities and people.
  • Considering all stages of a building's life-cycle.

We help our clients by creating a building that is efficient with resources, affordable to build and operate, delightful to inhabit and appropriate to their context.
