evaluation of green building material

Green building tools enable analyses of specific aspects of sustainable or “green” building, such as energy efficiency modeling, indoor air quality analysis or materials screening and evaluation. These tools can be standards themselves, and are sometimes referenced in whole green building systems, codes and certification

The first year, the session featured sustainable building materials, water conservation, and energy efficiency. One of . of Missouri offered a helpful literature review of green building materials research from masonry-based building materials (such as brick or concrete) to polymer-based building materials.

Post Occupancy Evaluation POE is essentially a way of evaluating how the building is working in use and providing vital feedback to the building designers.

In most construction projects, building materials are evaluated and selected based on performance, aesthetics, and cost. With "green" or environmentally preferable products, these traditional selection parameters are expanded to include both health and environmental impacts. Environmentally-preferable

robustness in evaluation, both of which serve to leverage the environmental advantages of wood. This continuing education course examines key green building rating programs and how.

At present, there seems to be lot of confusion in defining green materials and manufaturers will have claims qualifying their products as green materials. There is a need to have evaluation criteria for qualifying materials as green materials. An attempt has been made in this paper to propose a scale for evaluation of building 

build so-called sustainable buildings. One can get build- ings' sustainability in different stages: by thoroughly se- lecting building products and materials, by selecting the best building's design scheme from several alternatives, by using the most suitable construction technology, etc. 2.

In parallel, there will be more demand for materials, energy, and water resources to accommodate this fast growth in population and urban growth. Additionally, buildings contribute significantly to the amount of disposed municipal, and construction and demolition waste. Consequently, there is an urgent 

Several administration and non-governmental institutions in addition have aimed to change the sustainability of the building industry by developing green rating systems that can be used to evaluate the environmental performance of new and existing building.
