About Green Sketch TEAM
Green Sketch SERVICES
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a globally recognized rating system given by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED helps you benchmark new and existing building on a global green scale and achieve value addition in terms of worldwide recognition.
Buildings like Garments, Automobile and other manufacturing Facilities and warehouses with overseas clients, Multi National companies, data centers with worldwide servers, Star hotels and Resorts can all opt for LEED Certification.
LEED focus on all aspects of Green Building including The surroundings, community, the design process, water, energy, renewables, occupant comfort and quality and materials. The earlier you get started with LEED the easier it will be to implement and document.
Performing green buildings have been proven to improve worker performance, reduce absenteeism and overall enhance the quality of life. At Green Sketch we endeavor to give you tailor-made design solutions which work for you and your stakeholders, depending on your needs, your work culture and your aesthetics.
Consider, for example, it is common to introduce larger windows in office spaces for enhancing the daylight as well as for aesthetic reasons. However, a key problem faced by workers is that of glare on their worktops and computer screens; which in turn lead them to close the blinds and use artificial light even when daylight is available. Instead, Green Sketch suggests a smaller window design supplemented with daylighting windows and a light shelf. This introduces diffuse daylight into the interiors of the workplace without glare. Use of daylight during daytime can cut down the lighting power consumption by as much as 60% or more, which translate to direct cost savings in the power bills.
Our Green Design services help you enhance your building in the following ways
- Reduced power/fuel consumption which translate into immediate cost savings
- Reduced water consumption and wastage
- Selecting the right materials for use in your buildings which enhance its thermal and aesthetic performance.
- Enhancing the built environment with natural daylight, fresh air and making the building and enjoyable space to live, work and play
- Improving the construction process by best management practices which reduces wastage
- Syncing with the outdoor environment, the site and the community at large.
Green Sketch® Provides Green Building Design services for the following types of buildings
- New buildings, building renovations and upgrades,
- New interiors,
- Individual Homes and Apartments complexes
- Schools and other institutional buildings
- Healthcare buildings
- Townships and neighborhoods
- Other specific and/or multipurpose buildings
You can also certify your building to benchmark and rate your building. Find out more at Certification.
BUILDING SIMULATION AND ANALYSIS
Energy and Water-Efficiency analysis
Take advantage of our specific services in energy modeling and simulation and water use analysis to develop the best design at a low cost. Energy simulations are conducted by Green Sketch by taking into account various factors such as real weather conditions, shape and actual materials used in the building and so on. These simulations can help to visualize the actual performance of the design as well as help in making key decisions over green conservation measures.
Our Various services include-
- Complete Building Energy Simulation
- Energy analysis for Energy conservation measures
- Daylighting analysis
- Artificial Lighting analysis
- Shading analysis and Design
- Fenestration analysis and Design
- Water use calculations
We offer analytical and performance services of existing facilities as well. Find out more at auditing Research and Development
New ideas and new products need to be thoroughly vetted to make sure that they perform when used in green buildings. Work with us to find out how best it would work and how green is it. New products performance in buildings can be tested through simulations and implemented into designs where appropriate.
At Green Sketch we will help you to look at all the features, payback options and certifications that may help you to showcase your product as green. Contact us have a discussion with us about your product
Green Sketch provides Energy Modeling services for all kinds of energy saving requirements. Energy Modeling is a comprehensive method to help determine, how various energy conservation measures will affect your projects energy consumption.
The results of the Energy model can be coupled with a cost based payback analysis to determine the optimum measures that give us the best savings.
Energy Modeling will also help you designing shading devices, choosing the right HVAC system and ensuring thermal comfort inside your building.
Green Sketch will also prepare reports for submission to LEED, IGBC and GRIHA certification.
Daylight and Shading simulations help projects to design optimum facades which let in maximum daylight with minimum heat exposure.
Well designed shading devices can cut down the Glare and also help to cut down glare as well as reduce heat ingress.
Good day lighting design can avoid the use of artificial lights during the daytime which leads to energy savings as well as better occupant health and comfort.
Green Sketch will also prepare daylight simulation and shading analysis reports for submission to LEED, IGBC and GRIHA certification..
GREENING EXISTING BUILDINGS
Existing Buildings offer enormous potential to save energy. Green Sketch offers a range of services for greening existing buildings and interiors, where we will take a comprehensive look at how the building is performing and identify potential areas for energy, water and environmental savings. Our Results oriented approach for existing buildings include-
- Comprehensive study of the current performance parameters through utility bills, spot readings and other logs and records
- Analysis of study findings, coupled with discussions with the facility managers to arrive at key greening measures
- Payback calculations which help to select the optimum green building measures
- Monitoring the implementation of various measures and logging the performance effects
- Introduction and training for facility managers in the green building measures so that you get a green building that delivers results from day one
A key issue faced by many of the commercial buildings in India today is the availability of water. Shortage of water supply by the utility company forces many buildings to either depend on ground water or purchase water through tanker lorries which can cost as much as Rs. 12 per liter or more. In an existing building, the water taps can be fitted with a flow reducing aerator, which costs as less as Rs. 150 and will reduce the water flow by 30% without reducing the water pressure.
The aerators can be easily retrofitted onto most existing taps giving immediate water savings. Couple this with other water saving measures and this can save the building as much 50% in water costs. Aerators also have a quick payback of less than 2 years.
Existing Building ratings are available under various certification systems. Find out more at Certification.
Green Sketch works with you to analyze your usage patterns and performance and compare it with the design analysis. Make tweaks and corrections to get a green building that delivers measurable and tangible results. Commissioning is the process by which you can ensure that all the systems in your building is performing as desired
Our professional team will review the entire building performance data captured from various sources such as energy meters, water meters, spot testing and measurement meters, occupant feedback and comprehensively analyze them to give you a clear idea of how the design compares to the performance.
Use our services for Commissioning requirements related to LEED and IGBC.
