Immerse Yourself in Exceptional Green Building Excellence





Green building, also known as eco-friendly or sustainable construction, revolutionizes how buildings are conceived, built, operated, and maintained. It prioritizes environmental stewardship, resource efficiency, and occupant well-being. Unlike conventional structures, green buildings are meticulously designed to minimize ecological impact, optimizing energy efficiency, water conservation, and sustainable materials usage.

More than a design trend, green building addresses the pressing call for a resilient and sustainable future. It plays a pivotal role in curtailing the carbon footprint of the built environment, a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Through energy-efficient technologies, renewable energy sources, and advanced insulation, these buildings significantly slash energy consumption, mitigating climate change impact.

These structures also tackle water scarcity head-on. By employing water-saving fixtures, rainwater harvesting, and efficient irrigation, they alleviate strain on local water resources and infrastructure.

Yet, green building isn’t just about the environment; it prioritizes occupants’ well-being too. Non-toxic materials, abundant natural light, improved indoor air quality, and thoughtful spatial design foster healthier and more productive living and working spaces.

Economically, green building brings substantial benefits. Despite slightly higher initial costs for sustainable features, the long-term gains from reduced energy and water bills, lower maintenance expenses, and enhanced property value outweigh the upfront investment. Such buildings witness higher demand, occupancy rates, and a competitive edge in a market valuing sustainability.

Amidst climate change and resource depletion, green building emerges as a potent force for positive transformation. It signifies a commitment to future generations, responsible resource use, and harmonious spaces with nature. Ultimately, it’s more than architecture; it’s a pledge to coexist sustainably, revolutionizing how we conceive and inhabit our dwellings.

Need For Destination Branding

Sustainable certification programs, such as LEED® are an example of destination brands. Research indicates destination branding is important because it enhances the image of a destination among visitors and aids Destination Management Organizations (DMO) in measuring success. The logo adopted or created by a destination is central to branding; consider the McDonald’s Golden arches or Nike’s swoosh.

Logos are used to identify the company, product or place which helps raise consumer awareness. Additionally, logos are “one of the main vehicles for communicating image”. Logos provide a distinctive image, ideally one that is easily recognizable. These visual cues can enhance a destination’s reputation and serve as a market advantage.

Destination logos provide a brand image and identity, which is important to have in place prior to visitors arriving so they can influence visitor choice behavior. This occurs when the logo connects in a positive manner with the target audience by “positively symbolizing the anticipated visitor experience”.

Clients are increasingly integrating sustainability branding and adoption as prerequisites to bid for their business through their Requests for Proposals. Documents such as the LEED® rating system from USGBC are finding their way as questionnaires included by clients looking for a sustainable facility. Green building certification that is internationally recognized makes them at ease with the business that they award, as well as rings home with the end users.

Advantage: Certified

Certifying a building according to an established framework of principles and requirements by a third party ensures that there is a common baseline for understanding the "green-ness" of a project. During building design, we incorporate many technical advances to enhance the sustainability of projects. Quantitative analysis presented through clear graphics and computer simulation results goes a long way to confidently justify such design features to other stakeholders.

Measuring the Green Quotient

The Process

  • Benchmarking with similar buildings and communities
  • Evaluating available metrics: rating systems
  • Finally, going beyond codes and leading by example

Goals of Benchmarking & Certification

  • National and Global benchmarking of design and construction
  • Roadmap for buildings to:
    • use less energy, water and natural resources
    • improve the indoor environment
    • uncover operating inefficiencies
  • Incorporating current best practices
  • Demonstrated commitment to environment, occupant health & well-being
Compliance with the regulatory framework
