Green Building (also known as Green Construction or Sustainable Building) refers to a structure built using process that is environmentally responsible and resource efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle : from sitting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and demolition. This requires close co-operation of the design team, the architects, the engineers and the client at all project stages. The Green Building practice expands and compliments the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability and comfort. The common objective is that Green Buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and natural environment by :
- Efficiently using Energy, Water and other resources
- Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
- Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation
Perform Projects Management Pvt Ltd has been associated with many green building projects.The team has worked closely with various Green Building Consultants in facilitating the site related activities for a Green Building project. We have also been closely involved with the process of deciding the rating type which could be achieved and the methodology required to achieve the same.
These projects have helped us to understand the IGBC LEED system ratings and points system. They have also helped us to observe and evaluate the practicality of the suggestions and evolve ways to implement the process at site for the project.
