Green building architecture or sustainable building architecture is a concept which is catching on fast in the new era! It is nothing but an innovative approach for designing and constructing buildings that conserve energy, water, and material resources and are more healthy, safe, and comfortable. The green building concept is related to the structure and the processes that are environmentally responsible for a building’s life-cycle: from sitting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition.
Here is a run-down on the Green building concept to make it more understandable!
Normally Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and natural environment.
Common features are:
- Energy, water and other resources used efficiently.
- Occupant’s health protected and employee productivity improved.
- Waste, pollution and environment degradation reduced.
Not all buildings follow the green concept! Buildings can be considered green if they incorporate sustainable materials in their construction (e.g., reused, recycled content, or made from renewable resources). They should create healthy indoor environments with minimal pollutants (e.g., reduced product emissions). Landscaping is also planned to reduce water usage (e.g., by using native plants that survive without extra watering) and waste water from the building is recycled for watering the plants.
