:: Welcome to Indian Green Building Council ::

IGBC Green Interiors

The building sector in India is growing at a rapid pace and contributing immensely to the growth of the National economy. The sector has embraced sustainable design & construction practices in the past decade and enabled India to be in the International map of green buildings and built environment. While the concept of green was initially adopted in commercial buildings, it is now extending to varied types of buildings and communities.

This augurs well for a country where the sector is expected to grow four-fold in the next two decades.

The green concepts and techniques in the building sector can help address National concerns like water efficiency, energy efficiency, reduction in fossil fuel use, handling of consumer waste and conserving natural resources. Most importantly, these concepts can enhance occupant health and well-being, which is assuming greater importance.

90% of the time people stay indoors. Therefore the indoor aesthetics, air quality and comfort are of paramount importance to occupants. World over, designers are exploring opportunities to construct interiors considering these key elements.

Against this background, the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) has formed a Technical committee to establish green interior standards for buildings. The committee, through various deliberations has come out with a Pilot rating to establish standards in designing sustainable interiors. This has been developed considering the Indian context and the National priorities. The Pilot will be operational for the next two years. Based on the learning from the Pilot, the rating system will be further streamlined.

Benefits

Sustainable Interior design can result in multifold benefits:

       -  30-40% reduction in Energy cost
       -  20-30% reduction in Water requirement
       -  Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
       -  Use of materials that are non-toxic
       -  Better acoustics & ergonomics
       -  Improved health & wellbeing of occupants

The guidelines detailed under each mandatory requirement & credit enables the design and construction of interiors in buildings of all sizes and types (as defined in scope).

Scope

The IGBC Green Interior Rating programme is designed to address the specific requirements of tenants-occupied commercial spaces. The rating can also be applied by owner occupied spaces, provided they have not already addressed these in the main building.

The rating is ideally suited but not limited to office interior fit-outs, malls, retail spaces, hotels, restaurants, resorts, IT spaces, banks and other buildings.
