Jose cristina pariň partial fulfilment of the requirements for englres – basic research skills third trimester (2011-2012). We are to consider the design of the building that will provide a healthy surrounding for its ys.

People all over the world have been working on saving our mother earth through introducing eco-friendly ideas starting with buildings. The green building has been introduced but the features were not thoroughly familiarized by the people. This paper argues that the green building is more preferable to construct and experience than the usual constructed building in terms of constructing materials. The dictionary defines green buildings as “favoring or supporting environmentalism” and sustainable buildings as “capable of being continued with minimal long-term effect on the environment”.

Which combines the process of creating the building and facilities as well as being the guide for future projects. A green building as “a very common term used as a major focus area in sustainable construction”. The green building movement is the response of the construction industry to the environmental and resource impacts of the built environment. The term green building refers to the quality and characteristics of the actual structure created using the principles and methodologies of sustainable construction.

Materials from demolished buildings may still be used because this will reduce the waste generation. He also said that while considering the factors to evaluate a roofing system of a building. Studies show that a well-installed green roof can reduce roofing waste of about 80 to 90 percent over its lifetime. An example of a positive effect is that the used materials for the construction help decrease the lifecycle cost and help reduce the liabilities and risks that the construction of the building may contribute.

2010) these achieved and sustained levels being mentioned highlight the main advantages of green buildings from that of the other usual building construction. 2008) there are many levels on how a green building respects its environment as to what the urban land institute (uli) has affirmed. The effects alone can already bring up other positive sides such as superior building performance. Green roofing or vegetated roofing provides a better durable building design through green roofs planted with herbs.

2011) researches were done to further understand the methods of construction and the implications of green buildings to the environment. The evaluations included the measured energy performance of each building which illustrated the better performance of the buildings up to 40 percent than the average. Green buildings have affected communities by the creation of “green collar” jobs and by the generation of employment in green construction and trades. It incorporates natural indoor areas and natural building features such as landscaped roofs and mini gardens.

Sustainable designs are highly internationally recognized standard for green building design and construction developed by the usgbc. De jesus also mentioned that accreditations are voluntary although everybody should consider the benefits that come along with the green building. Most of the research projects came up with benefits that are usually applied in urban areas. These are highlighted in renovating the building to decrease the amount of nitrogenous gases present in the environment and to alleviate problems on the mall’s drainage systems.

The green building rating system (berde philippines) do not require the owners to have the berde rating because it is not necessary yet they believe that it will be compulsory in time. Green building council for a demonstration of a cost efficient and energy-saving green building through the mall’s transformation of the building’s design. And a water reservoir will be located as well at the lower level of the building’s expansion. There are owners who are responsible for the safety and other precautionary measures of buildings.

We have discussed the details that are often asked about what a green building is. The benefits of experiencing the features of the said building and the sustainable design of its construction are also discussed in this paper. The first to be considered is the high initial cost and the second one is the chance of having demands from tenants for the features of the building. This kind of eco-friendly building is effective in decreasing the rate of pollution and in increasing many means of improvement to human beings and to the environment as well.

Since the places where the construction of green buildings needs to be pursued are the areas with a higher rate of environmental problems. The availability of the construction site is somewhat a big problem that may hinder the promotion of green building construction. There should be programs pursuing the construction of green buildings in the philippines since filipino experts.. Based on our paper claims that green building is more preferable to construct and to be experienced than the usual constructed buildings for us to have a healthy environment that brings up a healthy community.
