Welcome to another blog post from Construction web, catch us each and every day of 2018, Keeping you inspired at the same time updated in the construction world.
Each Friday, Spotlight on green building and reviews. But on this first Friday lets talk green building
Green building refers to the structure and the application of processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle, from conception through completion to demolition.
This requires close cooperation of the contractor, the architects, the engineers, and the client at all project stages.
Most countries have a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings or rather an authoritative body that governs and checks compliance of local buildings.
The common objective of green buildings is to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by:
- Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources
- Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
- Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation
Examples of green technology subject areas:
Green building encompasses everything from the choice of building materials to where a building is located.
Environmentally preferred purchasing
Innovation involves the search for products whose contents and methods of production have the smallest possible impact on the environment and mandates that these be the preferred products for government purchasing.
The invention, design application of chemical products and processes to reduce or to eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances.
Nanotechnology involves the manipulation of materials at the scale of the nanometer, one billionth of a meter. Some scientists believe that mastery of this subject is forthcoming that will transform the way that everything in the world is manufactured. “Green nanotechnology” is the application of green chemistry and green engineering principles to this field.
