Green buildings can contribute to the reduction in water and energy consumption. The energy savings could range from 20-30% and water savings around 30-50%. Adopting green building techniques can also bring enhanced air quality, excellent day lighting, waste management during construction and operation, health and wellbeing of the occupants and the construction workers on site and lesser dependence on the usage of virgin materials.
Green buildings operate much more efficiently than conventional buildings. Since the energy and water consumption is less in green buildings, operating cost will be minimum. In addition to cost savings, the comfort level and productivity of the occupants also improves. Moreover, green concepts contribute to demonstrating a commitment to sustainability.
Green concepts and techniques can help address national issues like water efficiency, energy efficiency, fossil fuel reduction, handling of waste and conserving natural resources. The infrastructure development needs to judiciously shifts towards sustainable living. Against this background certain green building standards are laid down to address the priorities.
Green buildings deal with design, construct and maintain buildings to decrease energy consumption and decrease the negative impact of buddings on the environment and public health. Green buildings make a minimum impact on the environment. It is operated in such a manner that it utilizes all resources efficiently.
The energy efficiency of green homes is a key benefit that subsequently lowers operating costs and reduces dependence on a resident’s maintenance budgets. For the owner, the payback period during which the capital cost is recovered is an essential value that is delivered through green building homes. Green homes also address the critical ‘heat island effect’, providing an improved surrounding micro-climate for the residential area, thereby increasing the comfort of residents and reducing the energy consumption of air conditioning.

By definition, a green building is a development that is environmentally sound and resource efficient. It is designed to reduce the impact on the built and natural environment and the health of its occupants, by weighing up everything from the construction materials to the efficient use of energy. Our team of Green Building Consultants has helped developers, contractors and consultants implement Green Building best practices in their organizations and projects. The EnviroLink team works tirelessly to ensure our clients’ success.

Green Building Certification in Dubai, UAE
Savings in regular water use and significant reductions in superfluous water usage by adhering to a stringent benchmark are the hallmarks of green homes. Usually, 50 percent reductions in water usage are achieved when compared with conventional homes. Green homes emphasize better water usage as a stringent benchmark and the reuse of waste water is incorporated effectively by routing such water for various landscaping purposes and other activities. In addition, sewage water treatment, as per international standards, is a remarkable feature of green buildings.
Rain water harvesting and maintenance of the water table are scientifically designed to ensure that the percolation rate is at least 40 to 50 percent greater than the natural rate of seepage of the geographical location.
The fundamental truth that humans are social animals, as well as, part of nature is an integral part of the green building revolution.Sustainability experts ensure that there is improved productivity of the inhabitants by enforcing and following health standards without compromising the environment. The health benefits of sustainably developed green homes are reflected through the provision of natural sunlight.
The location of green homes is another striking feature that is addressed via landscaping. The considerations of public amenities, local transport and connectivity are of immense value when planning for a green building home, which in turn reduce the costs of transport and other expenditures. Owners of green buildings usually do not worry about the various amenities and faculties in terms of welfare measures and public utilities, as these are integral components of the building.
Through this revolution of green building homes, we are committed to spreading positive social awareness, reducing negative environmental impacts, thereby creating a healthier society and better environment.

White Paper: LEED Costs, Benefits and ROI (Energy, Water, CapEx, Health and Productivity)

When it comes to the decision making process for real-property investments, first cost savings are often a priority over green building and sustainable life cycle creation. A perceived lack of information about the actual costs and benefits of green buildings has led, in some cases, to concerns about whether to make a higher investment.Learn more about the costs and benefits of leed certification and ROI.

White Paper: Energy Modeling + BIM, Integrated At Last: Real-time operational energy and cost analysis throughout design and construction

As the world moves rapidly towards a more sustainable future, the design and construction of high-performance buildings has become the aspiration of developers on a global scale.
