  2. 2. 1 Submitted by Name:-PRAJAPATI.TIRATH.Ashokbhai college:- SARDAR PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING, BAKROL Branch civil-B Enrollment No:-151240106066 Year:-2016-2017 Submitted To:- Prof.:-GAURAV GOHIL Sub:-BUILDING CONSTRUCTION(2130607)
  3. 3. 2 INTRODUCTION: Green building also known as green construction or sustainable building. It is a way of enhancing the environment. It benefits humans, the community, and the environment in order to reduce resource consumption while enhancing quality of life.this ultimately results in reduction of greenhouse gases which will help to reduce greenhouse effect. this paper presents an overview of application of modern green infrastructure construction technology which makes a significant impact on conservation/proper utilization of resources like land, water, energy, air, material thereby reducing the overall cost of construction as well as adverse impacts of climate change. What is a “green” building? Green buildings are designed, constructed and operated to boost environmental,economic, health and productivity performance over that of conventional buildings. Asreflected in the USGBC’s voluntary LEED rating system, widely accepted as the nationalstandard for green buildings, an integrated design approach addresses the potential of the site itself, water conservation, energy-efficiency and renewable energy, selectionof materials and indoor environmental quality.Projects that meet higher levels of LEED certification can include a wide array of featuressuch as storm water retention through landscaping, innovative wastewater technologies,reflective roofs, energy generating sources and personal comfort controls. And, of course,energy-saving technologies such as WaterFurnace geothermal and water source heatingand cooling.
  4. 4. 3 GREEN BUILDING FEATURES Eco-Friendly-by least disturbance to eco system. Energy efficient-through the natural lighting ventilation and solar passive designs efficient use of water- through recycling and water harvesting use of renewable energy- through photo voltaic systems and solar system etc.non toxic material in door environment, use of recycle/recyclable materials , efficient waste utilization and disposal WHY IT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE THE BUILDINGS GREEN?
  5. 5. 4 What are some of the benefits of a “green” building? Many of the benefits of green building technologies and practices for occupants, owners and the environment and society at large are quantifiable and well documented. These include energy savings, measurable reduction of waste, decreased water use, and improved indoor air quality. Other benefits are less tangible and harder to demonstrate statistically while highly desirable. These include improvements in occupants’ health, employee morale, productivity, recruitment, employee retention and improved public image for organizations and businesses that build green. Many building and health experts agree that the social benefits of green building technologies and practices can produce financial returns for employers and building owners that overshadow the savings associated with more measurable building performance gains Here are some financial, economic and environmental benefits of green building technologies and practices
  6. 6. 5 No increase in first cost. Many green buildings cost no more to build or may even cost less than conventional building alternatives because resource-efficient strategies and integrated design often allow downsizing of more costly mechanical, electrical and structural systems. High-performance green buildings are cost-effective. Even for projects loaded with high value features, higher first costs often are recovered within three to five years through lower operating expenses and utility rebates for energy-saving equipment. Savings in energy of 20-50 percent are common through energy-saving technologies, integrated planning and downsized equipment.
  7. 7. 6 Facility owners can reduce their financial risk by making investments in energy-efficiency that earn a higher rate of return than the stock market or bonds. 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 IGBC RATING SYSTEM IGBC has developed green building rating programmers’ to cover commercial, residential, factory buildings, etc Each rating system divided into different levels of certification is as follows: 1. Certified? to recognize best practice 2. Gold to recognize national excellence 3. Platinum to recognize global leadership
  8. 8. 7 INCREASING GREEN BUILDINGS IN INDIA Today more than 1053 green buildings (as on April2011) are being constructed all over India. Of which 147 green buildings are certified and fully functional BENEFITS OF GREEN BUILDING Buildings have a large effect on the environment, human health and the economy. The successful adoption of GREEN BUILDING developed can maximize both the economic and environmental performance of the buildings. ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS Protect bio diversity and eco systems, improve air and water quality, reduce waste streams, conserve natural resources.
  9. 9. 8 ECONOMIC BENEFITS Reduce operating cost, create, expand, and shape markets for green product and services, improve occupant productivity. SOCIAL BENEFITS Enhance occupant comfort and health, heighten aesthetic qualities, minimize strain on local infrastructure, Improve overall quality life.

  14. 14. 13 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 .to all of the above going ‘GREEN’ IS THE ONLY.
