Environmental Sustainability & Eco-Living
1. Robust Foundation; Intelligent, Sustainable & Smart Design –
With look for an eco-friendly home, smaller structural buildings are a great place to start from. They are cheaper to run and are more environment-friendly as well.
But any beautiful design needs a strong & robust foundation.
Architecture and construction have a life expectancy that is important to take note of. Materials that are durable including stone, brick and concrete have longer life spans and are also more eco-friendly. Ensure you’re using the right material that can last you a long time before you construct an eco-friendly space.
With an intelligent design, you can make great use of the spaces available and think creatively towards space and infrastructure architecture.
2. Sustainable, Bio-degradable, Recycled building materials –
While we are discussing the eco-homes, the building material needs to be environmentally friendly, Sustainable, Bio-degradable and preferably recycled.
here’s a small list of the materials that are recyclable, Bio-degradable & sustainable:
Bio-plastics, Bamboo, Cork, Desert Sand, MDF (medium-density fibreboard).
The latest and exotic material which also in this category are:
Newspaper wood, recycled glass tiles, recycled porous pavement, concrete from ash by-products.
By using old materials wherever possible, you can reduce the environmental impacts and save money during construction. Recycled lumber, glass and plastic can be properly reused rather than purchasing newer products. They also bring reduced money and energy costs and a lower pollution level.
3. Energy-efficient home design:
While discussing the energies, the most common energy-efficiencies are required for Air heating & cooling system, lighting system, Sound & Heat Insulation, Solar, indoor air quality, window shading, and window orientations. Most priory Home orientation is the key to success in all of these.
The smart placement of windows can make a big difference in an eco-friendly home. Good technology allows in identifying strategic positions where you can make full use of natural breezes and sunlight into your space.
Good insulation is another factor to consider when it comes to building eco-friendly properties. Good insulation keeps the area cool during warmer months and minimizes the need for cooling and heating units regularly.
4. Cool Roof, Solar roof & Green Roofing System:
Ideally, most places in India face warm weather and the heavy exposure to sunlight, which leads to a lot of heat getting trapped on roofs, which then leads to the warming up of the building’s interiors which can be uncomfortable for residents, especially during summer.
Selection of a green roof system for an eco-friendly home that is effective. These heat-inducing methods which include roof covering, cool roof paint, planting grass and tiles will result in a much cooler building, and also save energy when it comes to devising other methods to cool it.
By using solar-powered installments, you will save a lot of money in the long run. If you’re constructing a home from scratch, then you must consider solar-powered machinery that will play a major role in saving energy and money. The location must be ideal, however, so you could talk to us and get a better idea of whether this is feasible or not. Software assists can also be placed to help you understand how much power can be saved and collected.
5. Water Recycling (STP) & Water harvesting:
Water a universal element, because of which the next world war might be called. We at RRHI extensively insist on Water and its conservation.
Since the bronze age time the water is being stored in vessels, dams for drinking, sanitary utility, cleaning and of course farming & vegetation.
With the use of rainwater harvesting system, borewell recharge method one can extensively utilize the groundwater recharge system.
Also by Grey Water treatment, sewage treatment plant and many such relevant treatments, one can save the environment by not letting the impurities flow back to mother nature.
Is this not a consideration for eco-living?Remember always to be giving something to get yourself something!
