  • CLIMATE, ENERGY & WATER
    Demonstrate optimization of the usage of energy and other resources in order to reduce load, increase efficiency and utilize renewable energy sources
  • BUILDING MATERIAL & ECOLOGICAL ENVIRONMENT
    Demonstrate the use of eco- friendly materials and construction techniques aimed at reducing environmental pollution. These will help prevent negative health effects and create safer working environments.
  • INDOOR ENVIRONMENT QUALITY (IEQ)
    The IEQ of a building has a great impact on its occupants’ health, comfort, and productivity.
    A sustainable building will maximize the use of natural lighting and ventilation, as much as the building typology and other site – specific conditions allow
  • GREEN INNOVATION PRACTICE
    The design should include, where appropriate, both passive design strategies (usually low-tech) as well as active systems (usually high-tech) that require less maintenance, less resources, fewer chemicals, and are cost- effective throughout the lifespan of the building
