  • 1. INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY & MANAGEMENT AL-1 SECTOR-7, GIDA GORAKHPUR-273209 (U.P.) GREEN BUILDING By-Sudhanshu kushwaha & Rahul chaudhary
  • 2. W hat is a “Green B uilding” “ Green” Buildings are high performance structures that also meet certain standards for reducing natural resource consumption
  • 3. Characteristics of Green B uilding • • • • Efficient management of energy and water resources Management of material resources and waste Restoration and protection of environmental quality Enhancement and protection of health and indoor environmental quality • Reinforcement of natural systems • Analysis of the life cycle costs and benefits of materials and methods
  • 4. W go “Green” ? hy • Green makes business sense Increased flexibility to allow for longer building and the useful life and reuse of materials Improved building performance Increased revenue (higher rents/sales price, improved productivity, fewer/shorter vacancies) Lower cost (utilities, costs of conversion)
  • 5. W go “Green” ? hy • Going “ Green” is the “ right thing” reduce carbon consumption, energy independence, encourage community, preserve natural systems
  • 6. Green B uilding standards include • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) • Green Globes • Model Green Home Building Guidelines (NAHB) • BuiltGreen • Energy Star • Living Building
  • 7. L eadership in E nergy and E nvironmental Design(L E E D) • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a suite of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings, homes and neighborhoods • It is developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 1998 • it is updated in 2009 with include compliance with all environmental laws and regulations
  • 8. Indian Green B uilding Council (IGB C)
  • 9. GRE N GL E E OB S • The Green Globes system is a revolutionary building environmental design and management tool • It delivers an online assessment protocol, rating system and guidance for green building design, operation and management • It is interactive, flexible and affordable, and provides market recognition of a building’ s environmental attributes through third-party verification.
  • 10. E nergy Star • ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency • It is focuses on energy consumption • It have different tools for residential and commercial buildings
  • 11. M erits of Green B uilding • • • • • • Lower operating costs (by 30%- 40%) Improve occupant health Reduce pollution Reduce water usage (by 20%- 30%) Eliminates creation of waste Reduce power consumption (by 40%- 50%)
  • 12. Site Selection • • • • • • Use appropriate building sites Use open space Reduce sprawl Develop brown fields Restore damaged environments Design to optimize sun,wind & light
  • 13. Green B uilding M aterials Prepare a green building product selection plan•Use recycled content building products •Use locally available or naturally occurring building products •Use rapidly renewable resources •Use certified wood •Use structural insulated panels
  • 14. E nergy efficiency Green buildings often include measures to reduce energy consumption – both the embodied energy required to extract, process, transport and install building materials and operating energy to provide services such as heating and power for equipment.
  • 15. Onsite P ower Generation Photovoltaic systems Wind turbines
  • 16. Onsite P ower Generation cont.. Micro hydro power systems Biomass power systems
  • 17. Onsite P ower Generation cont.. Fuel cells Solar thermal systems
  • 18. L ighting in Green B uilding • Daylighting & SkylightingIncorporated lots of natural light to reduce the need for electric lighting and the associated increase in the air conditioning load
  • 19. Indoor Air Quality • • • • Ensure adequate ventilation Designate indoor spaces as smoke-free Implement tobacco smoke controls Prepare an indoor air quality management plan for construction and early occupancy
  • 20. Indoor Air Quality Cont..
  • 21. Conclusions • Green Building Certifications present a moving target • Critical to work with clients early and continuously to determine goals and objectives • Focus on objective performance measures and clear allocation of risks and responsibilities • Green building issues are presented in nearly every phase of development – look for opportunities to improve old practices and “ boiler plate”
