Green Building Consulting in California

Green Building refers to structures that have used environment-friendly approaches throughout the different phases a building undergoes - starting from design to demolition. It requires co-operation and co-ordination in each phase from all personnel involved, architects to engineers to clients. The practice is complementary to age-old construction practices, but aims at improving comfort levels and reducing carbon footprints and degradation of the environment.

The California Green Building Standards Code or the CAL Green Code laid out general guidelines to reduce the negative impact buildings have on the environment. It is part 11 of the California building standards code. It encourages environmentally friendly practices in the following stages of building life cycles:

  • Planning and Design.
  • Energy efficiency.
  • Water efficiency and conservation.
  • Material Conservation.
  • Resource efficiency.
  • Environmental quality.
