The design, construction and operation of our built environment have important economic effects on the rate at which we use resources. Sustainable buildings (Green building) refers to a structure and using process that is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition.
Unlike regular construction, sustainable construction is based on long term affordability, quality and efficiency. This requires close cooperation of the design team, the architects, the engineers, and the client at all project stages. The Green Building practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. A building designed and constructed in a sustainable way minimizes the use of water, raw materials and especially energy.
A typical form of such effort is an energy audit, which can be performed during design, construction or usage (maintenance) phases throughout the lifecycle of a building. Technically an energy audit is an examination of conservation of energy in a building, process or system to reduce the amount of energy incoming to the system without any change in the amount of yields. It is an application which is made to control energy consumption and determine energy saving mechanisms.
