Abstract

Green buildings are also referred to as green construction or sustainable buildings.This term refers to the environment friendly and resource efficient structures and processes in a building's life-cycle:including all the steps involved in the planning,design,construction,operation,maintenance,renovation and demolition of the building structures.1The Green Building concept endeavors to address the classical building design concerns of utility,economy,comfort and durability.This necessitates close cooperation among all stakeholders including contractors,architects,engineers and clients at all stages of the project. New technologies are coming up all the time to strengthen existing approaches to creating greener structures
