Green Buildings, “A Green Building is a type of building designed to be environmentally friendly and sustainable”.
CONCEPT IN THE BENEATH OF SUSTAINABILITY
Green Building is much better product as compared to conventional homes.
Green Buildings are eco-friendly structure, resource efficient and are very energy efficient invention, and are designed and commissioned to ensure they are healthy for its occupants.
They are more comfortable and easier to live with due to low operating and owning costs.
WHY IS SHOULD BE FORWARD FOR THIS CONCEPT ?
Every concept that is thought have its own merits, some of very interesting merits of this concept-
Low operating costs. (About 30%-40%)
Improve occupant Health.
Reduce water usage. (About 20%-30%)
Reduce Power consumption by 40%-50%.
Eliminates creation of waste.
WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA FOR THIS CONCEPT ?
Green Buildings are not be a shocking concept to us, because in the ancient times people were aware about their health and sustainability. So they built their structures for long term sustainability.
Sustainable siting and design structure.
Indoor air quality.
On site power generation.
WHAT MATERIAL COMES IN IT ?
Materials are the basic need of a structure, it comes with the eco-friendly materials which produce a healthy environment for its occupants.
certified wood materials.
Structural insulated panels.
Concrete in different forms as fibercrete, woodcrete, grasscrete etc.
WHAT SHOULD BE DONE FOR WATER EFFICIENCY ?
Indoor water conservation plan.
Flow pumping fixtures.
High performance Appliances.’
Outdoor water conservation strategies.
Sustainable landscaping techniques.
High efficiency irrigation system.
Rain water collection.
WHAT ARE THE ENERGY EFFICIENT CONCEPTS ?
The energy we are using in now a days will not be the same in manner of use and the production so we should use the natural sources to produce the energy and the main sources are SUN, WIND.
Solar System for natural Heating & Ventilation.
Natural Day Lighting.
Employ an energy management system and commissioning.
Optimize site design to use the energy from solar and wind Turbine.
Landscape to provide natural shades.
WHAT ARE THE WAYS TO USE THE WASTE WATER IN WATER MANAGEMENT?
In big buildings the water uses increase due to highly demand and the water mainly waste in the toilets, during bath, cleaning of cloths, kitchen etc. So the concept is to save the fresh water,So where this waste can be used either in the gray form or after treatment ,should be used. A Green Building has some of these waste water management systems in it.
Water less urinals.
“off Grid” system ( Biological waste treatment)
Gray water recovery system.
WHAT CAN BE DONE TO MAKE A GOOD AIR ENVIRONMENT IN YOU LIVING?
Air is one of the element which exist on this earth , but as water the Air is very pollute in currently scenario. It is a very worst condition in Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai, Kanpur, Bengaluru from many years, the quality of good air is decreasing day by day in such metropolitan cities. So the time has come the people is dying due to the air pollution. You can’t stop the factories and industries, but you can make an environment,where you can breathe properly and can increase your life duration in healthy environment.
Designate indoor spaces as smoke free.
Low emitting Building Products.
ONSITE POWER GENERATION TECNIQUES:-
Maximize energy efficiency before power generation.
Micro Hydro Power Systems.
Solar Thermal System.
Bio-mass Power Systems.
