An approach to building that minimizes harmful effects on human health and the environment. The designer attempts to safeguard air, water and earth by choosing eco-friendly building materials and construction practices.
Sun Daylight & Shading Path, Analysis
- Conceptual design, architectural planning, development of architectural massing.
- Create mutually shaded and optimized envelope.
- Analysis for gaining daylight without much direct solar heat.
Lighting Analysis & Simulation
Efficient lighting design is an art of attaining required light levels for visual comfort on the areas required but still being in harmony with the surrounding spaces of the task.
Heat Island Effect Analysis
Heat island effect evaluates the surroundings of the building and the amount of heat that is being gained by these surroundings and how to overcome this in architectural design.
Thermal Comfort analysis
- Thermal comfort relates to temperature & humidity levels in a conditioned , partially conditioned or natural ventilated spaces.
- Most efficient HVAC system can be of no point if thermal comfort is not achieved.
Building Envelope Solutions
Energy Conservation Measure analysis of various building materials for their thermal properties and their impact on the overall project annual energy consumption.
Green Building Certification
- USGBC – LEED
We take our sustainable design seriously and we can achieve cost-effective solutions both immediately and in the long-term. We can construct a building that costs less and requires less maintenance in the future.
In addition to achieving cost-effective solutions, there are other benefits created by sustainable designs. This particular strategy reduces the impact on the planet and preserves a legacy, while improving energy performance, reducing toxic impact and pollution of the air and water, decreasing resource consumption, and creating a quality environment with clean air and plenty of natural lighting for the people working in the building.
When we improve the energy performance of a building, it creates an economic impact. We can use heat recovery as a means to better utilize the energy in our buildings. We can also reduce water consumption by not needlessly dumping hundreds and thousands of gallons down the drains each day.
A sustainability workshop gives stakeholders an opportunity to discuss all phases of the project, including program requirements, applicable criteria or standards, objectives, and overall targeted goals. For example, water consumption is one category where the objective may be to reduce consumption from off-site sources and the project target may be to specify low-flow water fixtures.
The number of projects where LEED certification is being pursued is increasing every day. Obtaining LEED certification is especially valuable because modern buildings with all the facilities and utilities have such high utility bills and high construction costs related to mechanical systems.
