The construction industry has evolved exponentially over the years. From an industry that plans and executes the construction of buildings and structures using modern technology, the construction sector today has become environmentally conscious, with the advent of practices such as green building, natural building, sustainable design, and green architecture.
Green building refers to both a structure and application of processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life cycle. From planning to design, construction, operation, maintenance, and demolition. Green building requires a coordinated and cooperated effort from the contractors, engineers, and architects at all stages of the project.
The main idea of green building is to incorporate renewable resources and to ultimately cut down the impact of the structure on the natural ecosystem. LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) of the U.S building council, BREEAM of the British construction council, the green star of Australia are some of the rating agencies which assess the design, construction, maintenance and carbon footprint of green buildings globally.
Although modern technology is constantly upgraded to aid the construction of greener structures, the main objective of green buildings is to reduce its impact on the environment and human health.
Hence, Green Buildings lead to sustainability which has a direct impact on the environment and can lead to the betterment of all the people living inside it and for the community around. We can also make our own houses green by minimizing the waste, using passive air ventilation, natural lighting, lots of plants to reduce the heat load and shade, plants also helo in improving air quality which is very much required now due to so much stubble burning in Northern India.
Hence, let’s aim to go green by these initiatives and spread awareness. Greenovator Foundation is working in the same domain and MG Cooling solutions, a leading HVAC Company in India is supporting in this noble cause.
