The concept of green building raise when we the environmentalist,environmental scientists,environmental professionals think of the environmental aspects of the buildings in which we live,we work which protect us from the nature’s extreme yet they also effect our health and environment in countless ways therefore a new field called “Green Buildings” gaining some momentum rapidly.
Green or sustainable, building is the practice of creating and using healthier and more resource-efficient models of construction, renovation, operation, maintenance and demolition.
Green building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Green building is also known as a sustainable or high performance building.
Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources,Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity,Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation.
For example, green buildings may incorporate sustainable materials in their construction (e.g., reused, recycled-content, or made from renewable resources); create healthy indoor environments with minimal pollutants (e.g., reduced product emissions); and/or feature landscaping that reduces water usage (e.g., by using native plants that survive without extra watering).
Some practices of green building has been observed in US,further more we should promote this new field for healthier and sustainable planet earth.
