  2. 2. INTRODUCTION • Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) expands and complements the building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. • A Green Building is one which uses less water, optimizes energy efficiency, conserves natural resources, generates less waste and provides healthier space for occupants as compared to conventional buildings.
  3. 3. OBJECTIVES OF GREEN BUILDING • Green Buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact on human health and the natural environment by the following ways: • Using energy, water and other resources efficiently. • By reducing waste, pollution, and environmental degradation.
  4. 4. FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES • • • • • Structure design efficiency Energy efficiency Water efficiency Materials efficiency Waste and toxic reduction
  5. 5. • STRUCTURE EFFICIENCY:  It is the concept of sustainable building and has largest impact on cost and performance.  It aims to minimize the enviornmment impact associated with all life-cycles. • ENERGY EFFICIENCY:  The layout of the construction can be strategised so that natural light pours for additional warmth.  Shading the roof with trees offers an eco-friendly alternative to air conditioning.
  6. 6. • WATER EFFICIENCY: To minimize water consumption one should aim to use the water which has been collected, used, purified and reused.
  7. 7. • MATERIAL EFFICIENCY: Materials should be use that can be recycled and can generate surplus amount of energy. An example of this are solar power panels,not only they provide lightening but they are also a useful energy source. • WASTE AND REDUCTION: It is probable to reuse resources. What may be waste to us may have another benefit to something else.
  8. 8. INDIAN GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL • The Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) was formed in the year 2001 by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). • The aim of the council is to bring green building movement in India and facilitate India to become one of the global leaders in green buildings by 2015.
  9. 9. IGBC RATING SYSTEM • IGBC has developed green building rating programmes to cover commercial, residential, factory buildings, etc. • Each rating system divided into different levels of certification are as follows:  „Certified‟ to recognise best practices.  „Silver‟ to recognise outstanding performance.  „Gold‟ to recognise national excellence.  „Platinum‟ to recognise global leadership.

  11. 11. • SUZLON ENERGY LIMITED,PUNE:  Several accolades continue to shower upon Suzlon‟s global headquarter in Pune “One Earth”.  LEED certified it as „PLATINUM‟ and it is built on an area of 10.13acres.  One Earth can be counted as among the largest green building projects in India.
  12. 12. • RAJIV GANDHI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTHYDERABAD:  India‟s first Greenfield airport is undeniably among the top 10 green buildings in India.  First airport in asia to be certified with „SILVER‟ rating.  This green building ensures optimal use of natural light and minimal wastage of electricity or energy consumption.
  13. 13. • NOKIA-GURGAON:  „GOLD‟ rated building by LEED.  Its smart lighting, heat recovery wheel and high efficiency chillers makes this office stand out from the rest.
  15. 15. DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BUILDINGS • The design,maintaince and construction of buildings have tremendous effect on our enviornment and natural resources. • Green Building is different from the other buildings because it use a minimum amount of nonrenewable energy, produce minimal pollution, increases the comfort, health and safety of the people who work in them. • It also minimize the waste in construction by recovering materials and reusing or recycling them.
  16. 16. INCREASING GREEN BUILDINGS IN INDIA • Today more than 1053 green buildings (as on April 2011) are being constructed all over India, of which 147 green buildings are certified and fully functional.
  17. 17. BENEFITS OF GREEN BUILDING • Buildings have a large effect on the enviornment,human health and the economy. • The successful adoption of GREEN BUILDING development can maximize both the economic and enviornmental performance of the buildings.
  18. 18. ENVIORNMENTAL BENEFITS • • • • Protect biodiversity and ecosystems Improve air and water quality Reduce waste streams Conserve natural resources
  19. 19. ECONOMIC BENEFITS • Reduce operating costs • Create, expand, and shape markets for green product and services • Improve occupant productivity
  20. 20. SOCIAL BENEFITS • • • • Enhance occupant comfort and health. Heighten aesthetic qualities. Minimize strain on local infrastructure. Improve overall quality of life.

  22. 22. AFFECT ON NATURAL RESOURCES • According to surveys conducted in 2006, 107.3 million acres of total land area is developed, which represents an increase of 24 percent land covering green buildings over the past 3 years. • In terms of energy, buildings accounted for 39.4 percent of total energy consumption and 67.9 percent of total electricity consumption.
  23. 23. CONCLUSION • This research identified the exciting developments taking place on the technology front and analyzes their implications for intelligent and green buildings, highlighting examples of “best in class” buildings employing green and intelligent technologies. These buildings are dynamic environments that respond to their occupants‟ changing needs and lifestyles. This research provided documented evidence to educate and influence end-users, building owners, architects, and contractors that a “greener building” can be achieved using intelligent technology and that this “greening” will provide a tangible and significant return on investment.
