Abstract

Green buildings are healthy buildings, both for the occupants and the environment. They are energy efficient, conserve resources, create healthier indoor environments and offer durable and beautiful spaces that use environmentally suitable materials. The guidebook’s primary intent is to provide a resource for building professionals in which they will find suggestions for green practices through the full cycle of a building project - from site planning to building design, construction and operation. Its most crucial consideration is balancing economic and time input with personal and environmental benefit.
