Green Building Design

Green Building Design

According to researches, buildings use 71% of total electricity consumed, 39% of energy and 12% of drinking water. In addition, it is stated that 40% of carbon dioxide emission and 30% of the resulting wastes originate from buildings. The solution to these problems starts with using buildings that respect the environment and consume natural resources to a minimum.

Green building design is a complete process starting with the architectural design and carry out with mechanical and electrical systems design. From land selection, recyclable material selection, shading design, natural lighting, insulation selection to natural ventilation, many topics are considered.

Yazman Engineering, provides energy efficient system designs, reducing pollution of environment, efficiently using energy and water and other resources, protecting occupant health and improving productivity with green building solutions on mechanical system design.

Benefits of Green building

  • Improve quality of life,
  • Improve air and water quality,
  • Improve occupant health and comfort,
  • Adding value to urban living spaces,
  • Increase the value of the building,
  • Minimize the destruction of natural environment during construction,
  • Enabling development and use of clean technologies,
  • Evaluation of waste material generated by excavation,
  • Recycling of rain water with green roof application,
  • Reducing the load on the sewage system by recycling rainwater,
  • Reduce operating costs via using solar energy,
  • Reduce operating costs via using natural light,
  • Reduce reflections of sunlight creating the greenhouse effect via providing green areas,
  • Provides energy saving,
  • Produce oxygen with green layers,
  • Reduce operating costs on heating&cooling systems and carbon dioxide emission with insulation systems
