Green Building Standards

Principles and guidelines for Green Building construction provide ecofriendly construction procedures for houses by using ecofriendly building materials. This is achieved through the convergence of four fundamental objectives. The main objective is to conserve natural resources and use energy wisely. This can result in balancing and reducing costs for constructing a new home. Ecofriendly buildings give buyers assurance that the home is healthier and more energy- and resource-efficient.

Building is a holistic concept that starts with the understanding that the built environment can have profound effects, both positive and negative, on the natural environment, as well as the people who inhabit buildings every day.

Green building is an effort to amplify the positive and mitigate the negative of these effects throughout the entire life cycle of a building. In practice, it builds upon the classical building design goals of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. By enlarging the scope in this way, green building provides project teams a more robust framework to incorporate the three pillars of sustainability (people, planet and prosperity) in their projects.

While there are many different definitions of green building out there, it is generally accepted as the planning, design, construction (and demolition), and operations of buildings with several central, foremost considerations: energy use, water use, indoor environmental quality, material selection, site and location within the surrounding community. 

Examples of green building concepts which create a positive environment for residents with its focus on health and wellness, experiences with nature, and connections to the surrounding environment. Some of the key features are:
