The concept of green building is so much talked about but not so much implemented on the larger scale. The main aim of optimization of architectural design is to make efficient use of resources in optimum way which includes study of renewable energy, embodied energy of materials, solar radiation incident on building, and water efficiency especially through rain water harvesting.

This study also leads to emergence of green rating which will help to assess environmental impact of building. We are going to work on application of all above mentioned points on two case studies of bungalow in Sangli. In this we are going to suggest various norms and some green techniques for efficient working of building throughout its life

The Indian building industry is highly de-centralized with people and/ or groups engaged in design, construction, equipment provision, installation, and renovation working together. Each group may be organized to some extent, but there is limited interaction among the groups, thus disabling the integrated green design and application process. So to minimize all these adverse effects, concept of Green Technology came into existence. Hence, it is very important to define and quantify sustainable building practices and their benefits. It is also important to separate the role of different participants in ensuring that the building consumes minimal resources over its entire life cycle and leaves behind a minimal environmental footprint. Till now this technology is used on large scale projects. In the recent decades the need of sustainable development is identified all over the world. The sustainable development is referred as green development. The green development is consisting of use of eco-friendly materials, energy conservation & prevention of environmental quality degradation. Further it is used to reduce the adverse impact...
