What are Green Buildings?

Green and intelligent buildings are structures constructed using environmentally responsible processes. These buildings remain resource-efficient throughout their life-cycle, commencing from their design to construction, operation, maintenance, and renovation to deconstruction. Green and intelligent buildings integrate several heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems so as to ensure efficient management of the available resources. Constructing a building based on the parameters of eco-preservation offers several benefits. For instance, such constructions optimize energy utilization and also guard the building against revenue loss or unbridled repair costs in future.

How do Green and Intelligent Buildings Conserve Energy?

Materials used for the construction of green buildings are mostly renewable and nontoxic in nature. Recycled metals, fiber glasses, and lumber are among the most commonly used materials in the construction of green buildings. To ensure preservation of energy, these buildings use renewable energy sources such as hydropower, solar power, and wind energy for onsite generation of eco-friendly energy. These buildings are also integrated with energy-efficient appliances that significantly lower the cost of energy consumption. Further, rain harvesting techniques are also implemented to reduce the wastage of water. Construction of green building can, therefore, significantly check adverse environmental impacts by reducing wastage of energy, enhancing energy preservation, and lowering operational costs.
