Buildings have major environmental impacts over their entire life cycle. Maximum use of resource such as ground cover, forests, water, and energy are depleted to construct and operate buildings. Resource- intensive materials provide the building envelope and landscaping adds to the menace-inturn using up water and pesticides to clean pollute even more.
Energy- consuming systems for lightening, space conditioning and water heating produce enormous heat. Hi-tech controls add intelli8gence to ‘inanimate’ buildings consumes lot of energy. Water consumed continuously during building construction, operation and for other chores result in ground water consumption. Several building processes and occupant functions generate large amounts of waste. Who takes the responsibility of all these?
Hence, the need to design a green building, the essence of which would be to address all these issues in an integrated and scientific manner.
The main objectives of Green Building Solutions are to,
In order to minimize the demand on non-renewable resources and maximize the utilization efficiency of these resources IGV facilitates the following
GRIHA, an acronym for Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment, is the National Rating System of India. GRIHA has been conceived by TERI and developed jointly with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India. It is a green building 'design evaluation system', and is suitable for all kinds of buildings in different climatic zones of the country.
GRIHA is a design & evaluation tool for green buildings & habitats in India, specifically designed to address the development, challenges we face today & our responsibility towards the future generations.
The green rating system has been endorsed by MNRE & launched by as the Uniform National rating system for green buildings in India.
The stages of the life cycle for evaluation are:
Our 'GRIHA Evaluators' & Green Building Experts help you to gain GRIHA rating for proposed building development.
