What is Green Building?

Green Building is structure where right from the construction it is ensured that waste is minimised at every stage. Also, the materials used in the construction are eco-friendly and the resultant structure when functions later, has minimum carbon footprint. Hence it can be said that while a Green Building is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout its life-cycle, right from design to construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition.

Why do you need Green building?

With the ever increasing pressure on the environment, today becoming environment friendly is need of the hour. Green building helps reduce the damage on the ecosystem as the concept of green building aims at using natural building materials not only during construction, but also adopts other methods, such as rainwater harvesting for its water needs, solar energy for the electrification, waste management, etc, which makes it self sufficient and completely environment friendly at every stage.

How Sanicon does it?

Sanicon Sustainability Solutions aims at making constructions more sustainable and less damaging to the environment. To make a building green, we construct the building in such a away that the moisture and humidity is kept out which decreases the need for an air conditioner. Another addition is a waste water treatment plant which treats the run off water so that the treated water can be utilised at non-potable sources such as for a hydroponics system. The water treatment plant can be camouflaged into beautiful landscapes that beautifies the surroundings at the same time. These are called Landscape waste water treatments. Along with these systems, efficient garbage disposal concepts called passive Sewage Treatment Plant are added. How you can make your building green?

What is the potential of a green building?
A green building has all the potential to: Create and provide a healthier and more comfortable environment for the occupan Enhance the long-term economic performance Incorporate energy and water efficient technologies for more a more eco-friendly structure Reduce construction and demolition waste from a building Include renewable energy technologies for a sustainable tomorrow Improve indoor air quality and occupant health be easier to maintain and built to last than traditional buildings
Why should I care about green building?
We spend a lot of time indoors and often the indoor air quality is very poor for traditional homes due to the toxic construction materials used. Green buildings have lower toxins in the air and water and are sited, designed, constructed and operated to enhance the wellbeing of not only occupants, but also to minimize negative impacts on the community and natural environment.
Is it possible to convert an existing building or home into green building?
It is very much possible to convert an existing building into a green building by adding designs and techniques such as rainwater harvesting, solar panels, hydroponics, sewage treatment plant etc.
When should I start to consider Green Building concept?
Green Building concept can be adapted during the construction of a building as not only does that prove to be cost friendly. But the required changes can also be carried out at later stages in order to convert a building into green building.
What is indoor air quality in a green building?
The importance and need for green building is increasing exponentially as our health is affected. Respiratory problems such as Asthma are caused by the harmful toxic chemicals found in most common building materials. Indoor air quality in green buildings is much better as there are no combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products, building materials and furnishings such as deteriorated, asbestos-containing insulation.
Do green buildings cost more than traditional buildings?
The answer is no, if planned correctly and efficiently, Green Buildings can be affordable to construct and even more affordable to operate and run in the long run.
