The New Green Approach for Living

In the purview of rising concerns over the depletion of natural resources and growing pollution, the concept of green living or green homes has been gaining popularity worldwide. While the idea is still at an adoption stage in India, there has been a significant shift in people's perception towards embracing a sustainable lifestyle that does not cause harm to the environment.


What is a green home?

A green home is a type of house specially designed to reduce the negative impact on the climate and natural environment. Green homes play a pivotal role in preserving the natural resources that are on the verge of depletion. Besides, green homes also focus on the efficient use of water and building materials.

One of the best examples of a green home is a  prefabricated home. These structures are generally made of recyclable material, and they use lesser material resources than traditional brick and mortar structures. Modular/Prefabricated homes have emerged as the most effective and sustainable solution for meeting the housing needs of people worldwide.

One of the leading modular construction services in India is Nest-In by Tata Steel.

Let us look at the several key steps in mind while looking at a Green home.


Structure design efficiency

While looking for an environmentally optimal home, the primary objective should be to minimize the total environmental impact associated with all the life-cycle stages that goes into building the home. In addition, buildings are much more complex products, composed of a multitude of materials and components each constituting of various design variables which has a direct impact on the life-cycle stages. Modular/Prefab homes which is now gaining popularity comes in several designs based on one’s taste and preferences ensuring optimal utilisation of resources.


Energy efficiency

Green homes often include measures to reduce the usage of energy. To increase the efficiency, one many use high-efficiency windows and insulation in walls, ceilings and floors. In addition, effective window placement is essential resulting is more natural light during the day which reduces energy loads.


Waste reduction
