Domestic and global new building construction a tool for selecting green and sustainable building systems and components

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper provides an overview of how to design a cost effective and environmentally responsible, green and sustainable, commercial building. Specifically included is the selection process for proper building components which will identify all factors that must receive design phase consideration and ultimately lead to the desired outcome. The process takes into consideration the appropriate aspects of various green building environmental assessment tools, such as, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Green Globes (GG), Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), to identify important elements for design, construction, operation and maintenance of a building.
