Carbon Footprint   How big is yours?

Carbon Footprint is a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of greenhouse gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide.

A few quick ways to reduce your personal carbon footprint: employ eco-friendly methods of travel, eat, minimise use of plastic products and save electricity, water, paper and use of non-toxic alternatives


 

Global Warming Leads to 150,000 Deaths Every Year – WHO Study

 CO2 is the main cause for Global Warming.     

…Keep carbon where is belongs…

 

Rainforests are made of living carbon - more than 260 tonnes are locked away in each acre. Destroying them releases more climate warming CO2 each year than the entire USA

 

 

“Architecture; accordingly is not just a decorative skin to be draped over an armature devised by developers and space planners. It is a process of integrating aesthetic, structural, social and environmental factors into an organic whole.”

 - Herbet Muschamp

 

Architecture with a Conscience is called with many names

 

Eco-friendly Architecture

Organic Architecture

Sustainable Architecture

Social Responsibility Architecture

Architecture for Humanity

Green Architecture

 

architecture can be humble, stylish and 'green' all at once

 

 

Green Architecture is a term used to describe economical, energy-saving, environmentally-friendly, sustainable development.

  Green architecture is becoming increasingly mainstream with the lots of eco-friendly architectural innovations and simple of-the-shelf construction products to help ‘green’ living.

  Green architecture seeks to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings by enhancing efficiency and moderation in the use of materials, energy, and development space.

An eco-friendly space requires planning as much as commitment towards a better future

Principles of Green Architecture

EPrinciples of Green Architecture: Energy Efficiency

•      design passive solar energy facilities use energy efficient appliances, solar panels and heat pump technology

•      Use of computer sensor controlled energy saving devices; like automatic dimmers for lighting and occupancy sensors to adjust air-conditioning automatically

•      centralise plumbing, insulate cold/hot water piping

•      Using energy saving lighting like CFL

•      Install Monitor Power Management Software

•      Use of low power computers

Principles of Green Architecture: Water Conservation

•      collect rainwater for external use i.e. garden/washing car

•      use water conserving appliances including toilets, shower, taps, washing machine and dish washer  eg. Low flow faucets, water saving dual flush tanks

•      reduce irrigation and surface water run-off

Principles of Green Architecture:  Low Environmental Impact

•      include water permeable landscape features

•      enhance native bush and create edible gardens

•      establish home recycling bins and garden composting.

Principles of Green Architecture: Building Materials

•      Certified Wood - Specify wood from certified sustainably managed forests.

•      select low volatile organic compounds (VOC) and toxic-free paints, finishes and adhesives

•      use materials that permit the building membrane to 'breathe'

•      apply natural floor surfaces such as tile, timber and linoleum

•      use sustainable solid timbers rather than processed composite sheet materials

•      use inert gypsum-based wall and ceiling linings.

•      Rapidly Renewable Materials such as straw, bamboo and some woods

Principles of Green Architecture: Sustainability

•      think globally -act locally

•      reduce CO2 production, ozone and resource depletion, rainforest destruction and erosion

•      encourage environmentally-friendly technologies and sustainable solutions

Principles of Green Architecture: Waste Reduction

•      select materials using recycled components

•      design for re-use and recycling

•      control and reduce waste and packaging

•      reduce resource consumption.

Principles of Green Architecture: Health and Wellbeing

•      meet the basic physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the occupants

•      consider healthy lighting, colour and sound, controlled temperature and humidity and good indoor air quality to enhance the living environment

•      reduce formaldehyde emissions and use pollution fighting indoor plants

•      create an asthma aware home i.e. no fitted carpets, reduced ledges, low-allergen gardens

•      apply an integrated wiring system for lighting, power, security, fire alarm and audio facilities

•      design a safe and user-friendly space

Principles of Green Architecture: Economic Performance

•      consider maintenance of the space plus initial 'running costs' pay-back period

•      strive for a balance between ecological integrity and economic viability.

Principles of Green Architecture: Community Support

•      use local resources, skills, labour, crafts and art

•      consider local facilities and utilities

 

Points for a Green office

1. Open plan

2. Big atrium

3. Communal desks for multiple users

4. Terra cotta Floor tiles and fly ash bricks are eco-friendly

5. Clear, white walls, eco-paints

6. Large, well-insulated double glazed windows, with solar shades

7. Solar panels

8. Windmill

9. Low-energy computers

 

 

 

Sustainable strategies: cooling towers, walls made of used tires, and photovoltaic panels that shade pathways

Green Roofs
green roofs offer a variety of additional benefits, including decreased heating and cooling costs within the building, reducing stormwater runoff, reduction of urban heat islands, and added green space.
