It is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource efficient throughout a building’s life cycle from positioning house on the lot to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.
This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability and comfort. Green Building is also know as sustainable or high performance building.
