Green Building


Green Building

With increased awareness worldwide to the concept of 'Green Building', builders, architects and engineers are working towards constructing buildings that are designed in such a way that it can reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by:

  • Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources.
  • Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation.

Mentioned below are the Seven Criteria's to Qualify for a Leed Certification :

  • Implement Erosion & Sedimentation Control to reduce negative effects on water and air quality.
  • Ensure fundamental building elements and systems are designed , installed and calibrated to operate as intended.
  • Establish the minimum level of energy efficiency for the proposed building and systems.
  • Employ Chloro Fluoro carbon Reduction in HVAC & R Equipment to reduce ozone depletion.
  • Facilitate the reduction of waste generated by building occupants and disposed of in landfills by ensuring storing and collection of recyclables.
  • Establish minimum indoor air quality (IAQ) performance to prevent indoor air quality problems in the building , thus contributing to the comfort and well-being of the occupants.
  • Minimize exposure of building occupants , indoor surfaces and ventilation air distribution system to Environmental Tobacco Smoke ( ETS )
