“Green Buildings for creating a Green environment” is what I would say. Generally, the term “Green Buildings” is understood in a wrong way. As in, the people have a wrong understanding about the term “Green Buildings”. Green Buildings does not just imply on creating huge lawns and making the building look green in colour.

It is all about making the environment green and create a healthy atmosphere inside the living space which also has an impact on the outside surroundings.
Vegetation, Landscaping is definitely a part of Green Building Design but that is not all which would make the building green.
In this article, we are going to discuss the goals of Green Buildings or rather I should say the “Principles of Green Buildings”.
If we are successful in achieving these principles, we will definitely be able to successfully design not just “A green Building” but also create a Green environment.
Site Analysis is very important before we initiate our construction. Detailed study of site and its surroundings will help justify our design proposal. Detailed study of the site and surrounding areas of the site helps in designing the project efficiently.
A site is selected on the basis of the demand of the construction
An already existing site is taken, is analyzed and the kind of project to be proposed on that particular site is decided.

New Trend: Environmental Friendly or Green Building Construction
When analyzing the site, we also have to consider the impact of the structure on the surrounding environment. If the proposed structure would have any negative impact on the environment. In one of our earlier articles, we have discussed “Site selection” and “Site Analysis” with respect to the environmental impact.
