What is a "Sustainable" Building?

Sustainable buildings is a deeper expression of an interesting and memorable building experience that embodies the context of building climate, the sustainability aspiration of the client, and a sensory message that elevates the residents’ well-being. 

In design and architecture, the new term green design has been emerging. Green design does not refer to a particular style, but rather the basic principles used in the conceptualization of an environmentally friendly building or an ecological building, which means a building that is designed holistically (relationship with the whole as a larger unit rather than just a collection of parts).

The development of a sustainable building takes in consideration all phases of the development process or the life cycle of infrastructure work, from initial planning (route study/environmental impact report) to construction, utilization and dismantling, and materials reuse.

Sustainability is achieved when all opportunities to prevent pollution, resources depletion, and landscape destruction have been leveraged optimally in every phase. This helps achieve a balance between function, environment, nature and landscape, welfare, and economy. Each phase in the construction process is a preparation for the next phase. 

The choices made in the previous phase influence the environmental effects in the later phase.

The construction phase consumes a relatively large amount of materials and energy. The materials come from natural resources and manufactured products that produce environmental waste. Delivery services are required in material procurement to get them to the project site, which generates carbon from the vehicle. In addition, electricity and water are also needed at the construction phase, although maybe less than during operation.

The main goal is to make the building sustainable, function well over time, and match the concept.

Jakarta has recently implemented several measures to increase the number of green buildings in Indonesia, including through policies to reduce water and energy consumption  as well as to reduce carbon emissions by 30% by 2030.
