Green Building Definition Green buildings are high performance buildings, providing healthier living and working environments for less money over the long run. Green buildings are designed to maximize users’ comfort and productivity while levying the smallest possible environmental impact. The key to this high performance building is the integration of the best technologies, materials and features in the design of the building. --Source: Windmill Developments
The Opportunities --In the US., buildings account for 65% of electricity consumption and 36% of primary energy use --Operating a typical US household produces 26,000 pounds of greenhouse gases each year --Most No. Americans spend 90% of their lives indoors.

North American demand for intelligent building controls-environmental (IBC) systems from 1995 to 2010.
Integrated Design Team An Integrated design team and process - dedicated to the integration notion! Integration should be implemented from inception to completion. The initial design stage is perceived as most critical to the process. The guidance of the System Integrator at this stage is indispensable!
