Foreword from the IGBC

The built environment has a profound impact on our natural environment, economy, health and productivity. Breakthroughs in building science, technology and operations are now available to designers, builders, operators and owners who want to build green and maximize both economic and environmental performance.

The Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) is coordinating the establishment and evolution of a national consensus effort to provide the industry with tools necessary to design, build and operate buildings that deliver high performance inside and out. The Council members work together to develop industry standards, design & construction practices & guidelines, operation and maintenance practices & guidelines, policy positions & educational tools that support the adoption of sustainable design and building practices. Members also forge strategic alliances with key industry and research organizations, Central government agencies and state & local governments to transform the built environment. As the leading organization that represents the entire building industry on environmental building matters, the Council’s unique perspective and collective power provides our members with enormous opportunity to affect change in the way buildings are designed, built, operated and maintained.

IGBC Membership

The council’s greatest strength is the diversity of our membership. The IGBC is a consensus based not-for-profit organization representing the entire Indian building industry. Since its inception in 2001, the IGBC has played a vital role in providing a leadership forum and a unique, integrating force for the building industry. The Council programmes are:

Committee – Based

The heart of this effective coalition is our committee structure in which volunteer members design strategies that are implemented by IGBC staff and expert consultants. Our committees provide a forum for members to resolve differences, build alliances and forge cooperative solutions for influencing change in all sectors of the building industry

Member – Driven

The council’s membership is open, balanced and provides a comprehensive platform for carrying out important programmes and activities. We target the issues identified by our members as the highest priority. We conduct an annual review of achievements that allows us to set policy, revise strategies and devise work plans based on members’ needs

Consensus – Focused

Introduction

The housing sector in India is growing at a rapid pace and contributing immensely to the growth of the economy. This augurs well for the country and now there is an imminent need to introduce green concepts and techniques in this sector, which can aid growth in a sustainable manner.

Green concepts and techniques in the residential sector can help address National issues like handling of consumer waste, water efficiency, reduction in fossil fuel use in commuting, energy efficiency and conserving natural resources. Most importantly, these concepts can enhance occupant health, happiness and wellbeing.

Against this background, the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) has launched the ‘IGBC Green Homes Rating System’ to address the National priorities. By applying IGBC Green Homes criteria, homes which are sustainable over the life cycle of the building can be constructed. This rating programme is a tool which enables the designer to apply green concepts and criteria, so as to reduce the environmental impacts, which are measurable. The programme covers methodologies to cover diverse climatic zones and changing lifestyles

IGBC Green Homes is the first rating programme developed in India, exclusively for the residential sector. It is based on accepted energy and environmental principles and strikes a balance between known established practices and emerging concepts. The system is designed to be comprehensive in scope, yet simple in operation.

The IGBC set up the IGBC Green Homes Core Committee to develop the rating programme. This committee comprised of key stakeholders including architects, developers, home owners, manufacturers, institutions and industry representatives. The committee, with a diverse background and knowledge has enriched the rating system both in its content and process.

II.

Benefits of Green Homes

A Green Home can have tremendous benefits, both tangible and intangible. The immediate and most tangible benefit is in the reduction in water and operating energy costs right from day one, during the entire life cycle of the building. The energy savings could range from 20 – 30 % and water savings is around 30 – 50%. Green Homes Rating tool can also enhance marketability for the project. Intangible benefits of Green Buildings include enhanced air quality, excellent day lighting, health & wellbeing of the occupants, safety benefits and conservation of scarce National resources.

III. National Priorities Addressed in the Rating System

The Green Homes Rating System addresses the most important National priorities which include water conservation, handling of consumer wastes, energy conservation, conservation of resources like wood and lesser dependence on usage of virgin materials.

Water Efficiency:

Most of the Asian countries are water stressed and in countries like India the water table has reduced drastically over the last decade. Green Homes encourages use of water in a self sustainable manner through reducing, recycling and reusing strategies. By adopting this rating programme green homes can save potable water to an extent of 30 – 40%.

Handling of Consumer Waste:

Handling of wastes in residential buildings is extremely difficult to handle as most of the waste generated is not segregated at the time of disposal and has a high probability of going to land fills. This would be a challenge to the municipalities which needs to be addressed. The IGBC Green Homes rating programme encourages waste management through segregation, storage and effective disposal.

Energy Efficiency:

The residential sector is a large consumer of electrical energy. IGBC Green Homes can reduce energy consumption through energy efficient lighting, air conditioning systems, motors, pumps etc., The rating system encourages green homes which select and use the BEE labeled equipment and appliances. The energy savings that can be realized by adopting this rating programme can be to the tune of 25 to 30%.

Reduced Use of Fossil Fuels:

Fossil fuel is a slowly depleting resource, world over. The use of fossil fuel for transportation has been a major source of pollution. The rating system encourages the use of alternate fuels for transportation and captive power generation.

Reduced Dependency on Virgin Materials:

The rating system encourages projects to use recycled & reused material and discourages the use of virgin wood thereby addressing environmental impacts associated with extraction and processing of virgin materials. Reduced usage of virgin wood is also encouraged

Health and Well-being of Occupants:

Health and well-being of occupants is the most important aspect of Green Homes. The IGBC Green Homes rating system ensures minimum performance on day lighting and ventilation aspects which are critical in a home. The rating system recognises measures to minimise the indoor air pollutants.

IV. IGBC Green Homes Rating System

The IGBC set up the IGBC Green Homes Core Committee to focus on residential sector. The composition of the committee included architects, realtors, building owners and industry representatives. This cross section of people and professions added a richness and depth both to the process and to the ultimate product.

A. Features of IGBC Green Homes

The IGBC Green Homes Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus – based, market-driven building rating system based on existing proven technology. The rating system evaluates certain credit points using a prescriptive approach and other credits on a performance based approach.

B. Scope of IGBC Green Homes

IGBC Green Homes is a measurement system designed for rating new residential buildings which include construction categories such as

Individual homes

Gated communities and

High rise residential apartments.

Existing

residential

buildings

who

retrofit

and

meet

the

mandatory

requirements and the minimum number of credit points

It is based on accepted energy and environmental principles and strikes a balance between known established practices and emerging concepts.

Different levels of green building certification are awarded based on the total credits earned. The system is designed to be comprehensive in scope, yet simple in operation.

C. The Future of IGBC Green Homes

The green design field is growing and changing daily. New technologies and products are coming into the marketplace and innovative designs are proving their effectiveness. Therefore, the Rating System and the Reference Guide will evolve as well. Teams wishing to certify under IGBC Green Homes should note that they will need to comply with the version of the rating system that is current at the time of their registration.

The IGBC will highlight new developments on its website on a continuous basis at www.igbc.in

V. IGBC Green Homes Overview and Process

The IGBC Green Homes Green Building Rating System provides a set of performance standards for certifying the design and construction phases of residential buildings. The specific credits in the rating system provide guidelines for the design and construction of residential buildings of all sizes and types. The intent of IGBC Green Homes is to assist in the creation of high performance, healthy, durable, affordable and environmentally sound residential buildings.

IGBC Green Homes addresses:

Site Efficiency Water Efficiency Energy Efficiency Materials & Resources Indoor Air Quality

Site Efficiency Water Efficiency Energy Efficiency Materials & Resources Indoor Air Quality
Site Efficiency Water Efficiency Energy Efficiency Materials & Resources Indoor Air Quality
Site Efficiency Water Efficiency Energy Efficiency Materials & Resources Indoor Air Quality
Site Efficiency Water Efficiency Energy Efficiency Materials & Resources Indoor Air Quality

An additional category, Innovation & Design Process, addresses sustainable building expertise as well as design measures not covered under the five environmental categories.

Different levels of green building certification are awarded based on the total credits earned. However every Green Home should meet certain mandatory requirements, which are non-negotiable.

The various levels of rating awarded are:

‘Platinum’ to recognise Global leadership

‘Gold’ to recognise National Excellence

‘Silver’ to recognise Outstanding Performance

‘Certified’ to recognise Best Practices

A. When to use IGBC Green Homes

IGBC Green Homes is designed primarily for new residential buildings. All residential buildings are eligible for certification as an IGBC Green Homes Building.

IGBC encourages the project team to tally a potential point total using the Rating System checklists for all possibilities. The project is a viable candidate for IGBC certification if it can meet all mandatory requirements and achieve the minimum points required in a given Rating System.

B. IGBC Green Homes Registration

Project teams interested in obtaining IGBC Green Homes Certification for their project must first register this intent with the IGBC. Projects can be registered on the IGBC website (www.igbc.in) under ‘Register Your Project’. The website includes information on registration costs for IGBC member companies as well as non- members. Registration is an important step that establishes contact with the IGBC and provides access to software tools, errata, critical communications and other essential information.

Consult the Web site for important details about applying the IGBC Green Homes application as well as the certification review process, schedule and fee.

C.

IGBC Green Homes Certification Levels

The rating system caters to both individual homes and multi-dwelling units. By and large, the context for both the types are similar; however the applicability of few of the green homes features may vary for each of these types of dwelling units. Hence the certification level threshold criteria are different for these types:

D. IGBC Green Homes Process

Once a project is interested in going green, the project must be registered under the IGBC Green Homes Rating System. The project design must incorporate the requirements of the rating system. The team begins to collect information and perform calculations to satisfy the mandatory requirement and credit compliance options. The project team will be expected to provide supporting documents for a portion of the mandatory requirements and credits. Supporting documents are those which provide specific proof of meeting the required performance level – such as calculations, specifications, drawings, cutsheets, manufacturer’s literature, purchase invoices and other source documents. Many of these items are implicitly described in the Abridged Reference Guide’s instructions.

Documentation is submitted in two phases – Design submittals and construction submittals. After the Design submission, the review is done by third party assessors and review comments would be provided after 30 days. The next phase involves submission of clarifications to design queries and construction document submittal. The final review will also take 30 days, after which the rating is awarded. It is helpful to designate a team leader who is responsible for managing the compilation

of this information by project team.

The IGBC will recognize buildings that achieve one of the rating levels with a

formal letter of certification and a mountable plaque.

Projects by developers can register for Precertification.

E.

Precertification

Precertification is formal recognition by IGBC for projects aspiring for IGBC Green

Homes Rating. Precertification is granted to projects on review of the early design

stage documentation. This documentation, which reflects a realistic set of project

goals and intentions, forms the basis for an award of Precertification. Precertification

is not a confirmation of, or a commitment to achieve IGBC Green Homes rating.

Precertification provides the owner/developer a unique advantage to market the

space to potential tenants and financiers.

Once a project is registered as an IGBC Green Homes project, the project team may

submit the documentation for Precertification. The project documentation is

reviewed and an IGBC Green Homes Precertification level (certified, silver, gold or

platinum) is granted. A certificate and letter are provided to the project.

The review will allow the developer to market the project's intention to achieve the

IGBC Green Homes rating. This Precertification process is not intended to be a

supplementary submittal for award of final rating.

IGBC Green Homes certification review will still occur with IGBC's established

two-phase review (Design & Construction). Because of the many factors inherent in

project design and implementation, it is possible that the final certification review

will not correspond exactly to the Precertification review.

To complete IGBC Green Homes Precertification, the following information must be

submitted:

IGBC Green Homes project information including:

Project name and registration number

Project contact

Project size (sq.ft)

Estimated time of construction completion

Brief narratives for each of the mandatory requirements and credits covering the goal, compliance option along with supporting documents

Supporting documents which clearly detail the intent to meet the compliance options may be submitted. These may include any or all the following:

Site plans

Plans and Elevations

Conceptual / Schematic drawings

Calculations

VI.

Fee

Certification fee information can be found IGBC website. The IGBC will

acknowledge receipt of your application and proceed with review when all project

documentation has been submitted.

VII.

Updates & Addenda

This is the first edition of the IGBC Green Homes Abridged Reference Guide. As

IGBC Green Homes continues to improve and evolve, updates and addenda will be

made available to substitute and augment the current material. Updates and addenda

will be formally incorporated in major revisions. In the interim between major

revisions, the IGBC may use its consensus process to clarify criteria.

When a project registers for certification, the mandatory requirements, credits and

credit rulings current at the time of project registration will continue to guide the

project through its certification processes.
