What is Green Building ?

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:

Energy
Perhaps the most urgent issue for green technology, this includes the development of alternative fuels, new means of generating energy and energy efficiency.

Green building
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.

Green chemistry
The invention, design application of chemical products and processes to reduce or to eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances.

Green nanotechnology
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.

Floating city of Tahiti

The idea may strike you absurd but imagine moving your house when your neighbour gets annoying, this is what will likely happen in a future upcoming city in the Pacific ocean.

The Pacific Ocean ? I also have questions just like you do  but get it right from us

The world’s first floating city is set to appear in the Pacific Ocean off the island of Tahiti.

The government of French Polynesia has signed a deal with Seasteading Institute to begin construction work in just two years.

It may seem like an illogical plan, by the group, SeaSteading Institute believes semi-independent cities would be the perfect place to try new modes of government and agricultural method. In an MOU signed on January 13, 2017,  The groundbreaking of the pilot project in Tahiti will take up.

The first city would be built on a network of 11 rectangular and five-sided platforms so the city could be rearranged according to its inhabitants’ needs like a floating jigsaw

Floating islands would feature aquaculture farms, health care, medical research facilities, and sustainable energy powerhouses.

It’s envisaged that between 250 and 300 people will call the first floating city home.

French Polynesia, a collection of 118 islands in the southern Pacific, is interested in the project as the area is at risk from rising sea levels.  and surrounding the city is a modular wave-breakers to prevent the city from waves and storms.
