Environment Friendly Buildings
Today, given the importance of environment problems such as global warming and dwindling water supplies, Environment-Friendly / Sustainable buildings concept is gaining ever more popularity. For the research reveals that 40 percent of the energy consumption, and 30 percent of the water consumption at a global scale occurs at the buildings. Furthermore, approximately 90 percent of our lives are spent inside buildings. Therefore, more efficient and more habitable environment-friendly buildings, which are easier on resource consumption, are on the forefront of the agenda. Environment-friendly buildings not only save energy and water, but also attach great significance to the health and comfort of the residents. During the design of environment-friendly buildings, elements with direct impact on human health, such as air quality of the interiors, natural lighting opportunities, temperature and humidity control, and waste management are given careful consideration. Furthermore, the methods utilized during construction serve the purpose of providing the end user with a cleaner environment. According to some studies undertaken abroad, the employees working in, and the residents of, environment-friendly buildings get sick less frequently compared to the dwellers of other buildings, and they tend to have higher work performances.
Why do we build environment-friendly buildings?
Buildings constructed with conventional methods consume 70% of energy and materials, 17% of water, and 25% of forests, whereas accounting for 33% of CO2 emissions. The recyclable materials amount to just 5% of conventional buildings.
Green buildings, on the other hand, allow to save energy and water, reduce waste, improve air quality of the interiors, increase the comfort and efficiency of the building’s occupants, and reduce the employees’ medical expenses, crowned with lower operation and maintenance costs. On average, Green Buildings consume 30% less power in comparison to conventional buildings. Water consumption of Green Buildings is also commendable. Through the use of water-free urinals, efficient reservoirs, sinks and faucets, it is possible to save up to 50% of water. Green projects also employ various strategies to achieve 50% savings in water used in landscaping.
Environment-Friendly (Green Building) Certification
LEED “ Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design “
The LEED certification program implemented since 1998 refers to an environment-friendly buildings certification system developed by United States Green Buildings Council (USGBC).
LEED system entails a long-term process from with the design stage, to the completion of the building. The process covers a number of issues concerning multiple disciplines. LEED system comprises a number of categories in existence or under development, applicable to various types of buildings. These are;
LEED system reviews and evaluates the buildings with reference to the 7 aspects below:
Each aspect entails certain prerequisites and credit definitions. First the prerequisites are required to be achieved, and then the scores under each credit are to be collected. The project shall then be awarded as a Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum project.
The certificate levels with reference to the scores achieved are as follows:
Certified: 40-49 points
Silver: 50-59 points
Gold: 60-79 points
Platinum: 80-110 points
Within the framework of LEED certification;
PALLADIUM TOWER and LEED SYSTEM
Palladium Tower Palladium Tower Project aims to achieve GOLD level certification in the Core & Shell category of LEED. In this context, numerous environment and human friendly characteristics are integrated into the project design and construction.
Within the framework of LEED System, some of the sustainable strategies and solutions implemented in Palladium Tower Project include the following:
SUSTAINABLE LAND AND LOCATION
MATERIALS AND RESOURCES
All construction materials used in the building are selected with a view to ensuring sustainability and environment-friendliness. A substantial portion of the waste produced during the construction of the building were recycled and/or reclaimed, to minimize the amount of waste sent to waste disposal sites. In this framework, all domestic waste and recyclable waste produced during construction were tracked on a regular basis. The use of recyclable contents and local materials were prioritized within the framework of the project.
QUALITY OF INTERIORS and USER COMFORT
In a nutshell, Palladium Tower Project complies with LEED GOLD criteria in terms of design and construction, with a view to minimize the adverse impact of construction over the environment. Furthermore, thanks to the strategies and systems utilized in design and construction, the operating costs to arise during the life of the building will be minimized.
