What is Green Building and how did Genzyme do it?


Green building
Green Building?

  • Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) refers to a structure and using process that is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition. This requires close cooperation of the design team, the architects, the engineers, and the client at all project stages. The Green Building practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort.

Purpose of building green
PURPOSE OF BUILDING GREEN

If you're involved with a new project, and you are not making it as green and low energy as possible, it will be functionally obsolete the day it opens and economically disadvantaged for its entire lifetime.

Jerry Yudelson, former national board member of the U.S. Green Building Council (2008)
