Green Building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction. Buildings are designed in such a way to reduce overall impact on environment and human health by: Reducing trash, pollution and degradation of environment. Efficiently using energy, water and other resources. Protecting occupant health and improving productivity. Green Building is really the most cost-effective kind of design and construction.
With that said, I am glad that one of my favorite place to stay whenever I am on a “getaway” and “leave me alone” mode is a Green Building. I’m talking about Primavera Residence, a new huge and groundbreaking project by certified green builder Italpinas Development Corp. (IDC).
So, let me show you WHY living in a Green Building is Beneficial.
Designers of green buildings try as much as possible to reduce dependency on energy from non-renewable sources such as coal. To this end, they install solar panels to make use of energy from the sun, and design windows in a way that allows as much natural light as possible and, therefore, reduces the use of artificial light; these and other methods ensure that the building uses energy in an efficient manner. So this means living in a green building reduces demand on electric, gas and water utilities, thus it decrease the electricity bill.
Green building allows for the use of alternative sources of water such as rainwater, reducing water waste through the installation of plumbing fixtures that are efficient and reducing the strain on shared water resources by installing systems that purify water and enable recycling.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Good indoor environment quality is one protects the health of the building’s occupants, reduces stress and improves their quality of life. This includes the air we breathe indoors. With green building, breathe easy with fresh air indoors! This is achieved through installation of operable windows that allow in as much sunlight as possible and reducing the use of materials that may emit elements that are dangerous to the health.
Noticed that as the years progressed, people are becoming more and more health conscious. People living in a green building enjoys many health benefits because green building are using safe materials in its construction. Using of plastic by-products that is found to release toxic materials is a must.
Trivia: Toxic substances like carcinogens not only cause significant breathing difficulties but also increase the chances of getting cancer.
Green Buildings are eco-friendly buildings. It uses unique construction techniques that ensure that resources are used efficiently and responsibly at the same time not compromising on the user’s health and comfort.
When you plan to invest on a property or a simple condo unit to live in, consider how the building is constructed because it will play a huge impact on your quality of life too.
