IGBC Green Service Buildings

Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) has launched ‘IGBC Green Service Buildings rating system’ (Pilot Version), a simplified tool, to address the environmental aspects in service buildings (such as Petro stations, Police stations, Sub stations, Bus stations, Fire stations) and small office buildings.


The service buildings including small office buildings can have excellent benefits, both tangible and intangible. The most tangible benefits are reduction in water and energy consumption right from day one of occupancy. The energy savings could range from 20 - 30% and potable water savings around 30 - 40%. The intangible benefits include enhanced air quality, excellent daylighting, awareness on green concepts and conservation of scarce national resources.

Overview

IGBC Green Service Buildings rating system (Pilot version) addresses green features under the following categories:

  • Site Planning and Design
  • Water Conservation
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Building Materials and Resources
  • Health and Well-being
  • Green Measures Beyond the Fence
  • Innovation and Performance

The guidelines detailed under each mandatory requirement & credit, enables the design, construction and renovation of new & existing buildings (as defined in scope). Different levels of green building certification are awarded based on the total credits earned. However, every service building/ small office building should meet certain mandatory requirements, which are non-negotiable.

Scope

  • IGBC Green Service Buildings rating system is designed for both new & existing buildings with built-up area:
  •          o Petro stations, Police stations, Sub stations, Bus stations, Fire stations: ≤ 2,500 sq.m and 3              floors (habitable) or less, for each building.
             o Offices, Banks, Healthcare, Retail, Mixed-use office buildings: 1,500 sq.m and 3 floors              (habitable) or less, for each building.
                      o Healthcare buildings with out-patient services
    Note : Projects which comply with IGBC Service Buildings or other suitable IGBC rating systems (E.g. New Buildings, Existing Buildings, etc), such projects can opt for a most suitable IGBC rating system.
  • Service Buildings include (but are not limited to) Petro/Gas stations, Receiving sub stations, Police Stations, Bus stations, Fire stations, Offices, Retail, Banks, Healthcare.
  •          o Building types such as residential, schools, factory buildings, etc. will be covered under              other suitable IGBC rating programmes.
  • The rating system is applicable to owner-occupied/ mixed-use permanent buildings with at least one occupant.
  •          o Tenant occupied areas in mixed-use buildings (such as retail spaces and residential areas)              shall not be more than 35% of the built-up area.
  • The rating awarded to the project would be based on the building typology. E.g. for Petro Stations - “IGBC Green Petro Station” and the same would be mentioned on Plaque and Certificates.
  • Precertification is not offered under this rating system.
  • New buildings are those which are in operation for less than one year.
  • Existing buildings are those which are in operation for more than one year.
  • Major renovation in buildings includes, but not limited to, major renovation of external façade (wall and glazing), interiors, lighting and HVAC systems.
  • The rating system is applicable for buildings with enclosed and habitable spaces.
The project team can evaluate all the possible points to apply under the rating system using a suitable checklist i.e. New buildings and Existing buildings. The project can apply for IGBC Green Service Buildings rating system certification, if the project can meet all mandatory requirements and achieve the minimum required points.

Validity

The rating awarded for IGBC Green Service Buildings would be valid for a period of 3 years. Thereafter, the building has to apply for re-certification with the prevailing version. The building can also apply for re-certification/ renewal within 3 years of award of the rating for a superior rating, if new green features are implemented or existing green features are enhanced in the building.The recertification/ renewal of new projects will be considered under Existing Buildings category.
