Why do we tend to reduce the word such as organic, green, sustainable to a community of hippies “letting life flow.”
Preserving the environment cannot be compared to a cult. Green building is a lot more than a cult; it is a practice that now is a lifestyle option, will soon become a necessity, if you don’t take adequate measures at the right time.
Green building, although for some is still a new concept, is being practiced by people from ages. Those people, realized the importance of preserving the planet, to let the future generation enjoy the resources. But since it is coming into the limelight as of now, there are several misconceptions about green building that makes people apprehensive about implementing it:
IT IS EXORBITANT:
There is no doubt that green building materials are expensive, but that is the half-truth. Green building materials have a high upfront cost, but in the long run, these energy efficient materials help cut down expenditure to a considerable extent. If you are still perturbed about the price, we would suggest using recycled materials instead of buying new green building supplies.
IT A TREND:
Green building is a practice, not a fad that will go away with time. It is a practice to incorporate such habits and materials in our construction technique that it leads to minimize wastage of environmental resources and promotes sustainable development. It is a responsibility to maintain a healthy environment by releasing fewer pollutants in air and making use of minimum fossil few, thereby encouraging high-quality living.
IT IS FORMIDABLE AND WON’T NECESSARILY MAKE MUCH DIFFERENCE:
Every minuscule habit of inculcating more and more sustainable practices will help improve the quality of life of the planet and the occupants. By implementing a single energy-efficient routine, you will be able to see gradual transformations. Sustainable development is no longer a choice of living but the need of the hour and green building is a pivotal part of it.
If you own a commercial or residential property and have been meaning to renovate it with green building construction, it is advisable to consult a green building professional that is certified for their green building practices and strategies by a credible authority. They will guide you with comprehensive green building approach, complying to the government construction regulations, including the construction, the purpose and those occupying it to promote exhaustive sustainable development.
