Figure 1. Research Paradigm


The research paradigm is depicted in Figure 1. The inputs are focus on the
profile of the respondents, level awareness of the respondents, and the extent of
benefits of PUP-CEAFA on BERDE-green building for operations in the aspects of
management, water and energy. Expected output of the research were the identification
of the respondents of the study, assessed level of awareness, and assessed extent of
benefits of PUP-CEAFA on BERDE-green building for operations. As an end results,
solutions and recommendations to the issues encountered on the BERDE-green
building practices are expected. For the final result of this research, BERDE-green
building action plan is hereby proposed on PUP-CEAFA in the aspects of management,
water and energy.
