WHAT'S NEW IN GREEN BUILDING DESIGN?

 



Some of the critical green building trends for the coming years include an increased focus on sustainability and resilience, the use of renewable energy sources, energy-efficient design, water conservation, the use of green roofs and walls, earth-shelter integrations, better insulation, the use of sustainable non-toxic materials, net-zero energy buildings, water collection, zero-waste, etc ...

 

Green buildings are designed, constructed, and operated to enhance the well-being of their occupants and support a healthy community and natural environment.In practical terms, green building is a whole-systems-approach to building that includes:

  • Designing for livable communities

  • Using sun, landscaping and site for natural heating, cooling, and daylighting

  • Landscaping with native, drought-resistant plants and water-efficient practices

  • Building quality, durable structures

  • Reducing and recycling construction and demolition waste

  • Insulating well and ventilating appropriately

  • Incorporating durable, salvaged, recycled, and sustainably harvested materials

  • Using healthy non-toxic products and responsible eco-friendly building practices

  • Using energy-efficient and water-saving appliances, fixtures and technologies

When implemented holistically, these strategies serve to preserve our environment for future generations by conserving natural resources and protecting air and water quality. They provide benefits for us today by increasing comfort and well-being and helping to maintain healthy air quality. Finally, green building strategies are good for everyone's pocketbook by reducing maintenance and replacement requirements, reducing utility bills and lowering the cost of home ownership, and increasing property and resale values.The five principles of green building:

  • Livable communities

  • Energy efficiency

  • Indoor air quality

  • Resource conservation

  • Water conservation
