Green Building Design
Green Building is a building which utilizes very less external energy and is capable of producing ample amount of energy without causing any harm to the environment .

.

 Increased property value.  Increased return on investment..  Enhanced occupant health and wellbeing.  Boost occupant productivity.  Increased sales and leasing potential .

Solar panels 100 to 200 watts of energy per panel .

Solar heater. Solar batteries. 2.The non conventional energy resources can be utilized with the aid of Various equipment such as: 1. 3. Solar geyser. .

stored and utilized effectively.  The boundary of rainwater can meet all the reasonable need of mankind if the rainwater is harvested.  To improve the quality of water in the subsurface sources. To increase the groundwater table level.  To maintain the water level as constant in the subsurface sources. .

Avoid building on (5 criteria): • Prime agricultural land  • Land less than 5 feet above  The 100-year flood plain  • Within 100 feet of wetlands  • Threatened species habitat  • Prior public parkland .

.

 • Ducts must be Sealed with Mastic  • Requirements for Total Duct Leakage  • Exterior Ventilation Requirement  • Electronic/Electrostatic Air Cleaner Option(s)  • Central Vacuum (if installed) Vents to Outside  • Sheet Metal Plenums (on supply side) .INDOOR AIR QUALITY Mechanical Rooms Insulated  • Range Hood Vented to Outside  • Fireplace Combustion Gases Prohibited  • CO Detector per 1.F.000 S.

Water Efficient Landscaping:  Use micro Irrigation or capture Water to reduce Irrigation by 50%  Use only Captured water or Install no permanent Irrigation system  .

industrial. “trash”. healthcare. It is generated by domestic. agricultural and mineral extraction activities and accumulates in streets and public places. Compost is created by the decomposition of organic matter such as yard waste. The words “garbage”. “refuse” and “rubbish” is used to refer to some forms of solid waste. and is not intended to be discharged through a pipe. commercial. . Compost systems confine compost so that it can receive air and create suitable temperatures for proper decomposition into fertilizer.  Solid waste can be defined as material that no longer has any value to the person who is responsible for it. It does not normally include human excreta.

The wastewater generated by toilets. clothes washers. Grey water is defined as the wastewater produced from baths and showers. . This is not a difficult task in new construction but can be problematic in existing buildings. kitchen sinks. and lavatories. and dishwashers are called black water  The use of grey water for irrigation requires separate black water and grey water waste lines in the house.

.

 The recycled waste water and quantity of water obtained by recycling will cause great saving in treated water. .  The percolation of waste water in ground will increase the level of ground water recharge.

    In today‟s age where „Energy crisis‟ is major problem. Green buildings are also capable of producing electricity on domestic level with non-conventional energy sources. Green buildings are only way to a sustainable future!!!! . All the systems for cooling and heating are designed such that they require very less energy. Green building gives brilliant solution for this. These are designed to use minimum energy. In today‟s era green buildings are essential as environmental balance is very important for survival and further development of human beings.

 The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) TERI was formally established in 1974 with the purpose of tackling and dealing with the immense and acute problems that mankind is likely to be faced with in the years ahead 1)on account of the gradual depletion of the earth‟s finite energy resources which are largely non-renewable and 2)on account of the existing methods of their use which are polluting .
