GREEN BUILDING DESIGN IS THE FUTURE OF CONSTRUCTION
At AAA, we pride ourselves in being an Architectural Consultancy in Dubai that’s committed to sustainable development. We understand that this form of eco-conscious development is only possible if the importance of green building architecture is emphasized.
With the climate crisis being as prescient as ever, we would like to shed light on the concept of green building in architecture and discuss its future significance.
What is Green Design?
Also known as sustainable buildings architecture, green design is an approach to construction that involves environmental advocacy. Some familiar elements associated with this concept include material recycling, reliance on alternative energy sources, and conservation of energy. Some of these elements can directly be attributed to building architecture.
A good example of sustainable architecture buildings would be the underground construction that is largely done to help with energy conservation.
The Rising Demand for Sustainable Architecture Solutions
We live in an era where a majority of folks around the globe are aware and thus more mindful of their impact on the environment. Judging by pressure being put on global leaders by environmental activists, we have a future generation that’s more than willing to do whatever it takes to combat the challenges posed by climate change.
Businesses also have a vested interest in behaving in a manner that can widely be deemed eco-friendly. This is why sustainable architecture’s future looks inevitably bright. The anticipation of climate change, increased awareness around the detrimental effects of fossil fuels, and a resilient generation of youngsters have all led to the rise in demand for green building and sustainable architectural design.
Construction businesses, especially in Dubai have responded urgently to this demand and are actively seeking out creative and professional assistance to address environmental issues. We here are AAA have been particularly effective in combatting these issues by offering green building consultancy services.
The Goal of Green Architecture & Sustainable Building Design
The primary goal of green building is to reduce the impact construction can have on our environment. Accomplishing this goal isn’t easy lest businesses turn towards innovative solutions that have already proven quite effective in protecting the environment.
Those solutions are as follows:
1. Sustainable Cooling and Heating
Developers are now turning their attention to solar cooling and heating technology. They make high-impact, low-threshold design techniques that can be incorporated with new structures as well as used to renovate existing ones.
Research centers around the world are hard at work trying to develop systems that could allow buildings to harness solar and thermal energy. Builders are also being made of materials that are dense enough to absorb and store heat from the sun. This could take us one step closer to relinquishing our dependence on fossil fuels.
2. High-Quality Eco-Friendly Materials
Sustainable development advocates for the use of natural materials that can be recycled to reduce wastage. Using these materials also makes business sense as they can significantly drop development costs. Today, we are already witnessing creative developers use everything from reclaimed wood to recyclable glass to build a wide range of structures. One can only expect their use in construction to multiply in the coming future.
3. Water Conservation
Sustainable development cannot be accomplished without taking water conservation into consideration. This is why structures are being built in a way that allows for water harvesting. Water harvesting, in particular, remains a simple yet effective strategy to save water. Structures are incorporating water collection systems that can range from storage barrels to something really sophisticated like a cistern or a robust filtration unit.
4. Waste Management
Green building also involves taking a more creative approach to sewage treatment. Specific plants and aquatic life have proven far more effective in purifying and filtering water than some long-standing traditional methods. Developers are now relying on unique algae, sand, ponds, and other unconventional alternatives to treat sewage in a sustainable manner.
5. Smart Future Green Architecture Design
Developers worldwide have finally understood that smart green building design processes can only prove fruitful with more relevant stakeholders involved. That’s why we have scientists, government representatives, and activists now becoming a part of the construction process of new buildings. This makes sense when you consider that when it comes to the environment, the end goal of many should be prioritized over the personal ambitions of a few.
Sustainable development and green building are very much the need of the hour and AAA is leading the charge as one of the finest green building consultants in Dubai. Over the years, we’ve overseen the eco-friendly development of many high-profile residential and commercial projects around the city and can do the same for you.
