Green Design

Green design has become the hottest buzzword with the design community around the world. But most of the literature, discussions, meetings and seminars on green design end up drawing attention to the social and environmental impacts of growth rather than offering solutions.

As the earth gets warmer, with water and energy getting more and more expensive and scarce, there is a need to rethink and rework the very essentials of the entire design process today.

There is a need to mindfully examine the value of balance between the product of design and the environmental and social impact of the same.

We, at Besten strongly believe that today’s designers have the responsibility to not only work for sustainable growth, but also to provide for the regeneration of our already threatened ecosystem.

Besten has a strong commitment and enthusiasm in training and continuously improving the skill sets and awareness within Besten and our clients, so that the projects are created not with “less bad” but with “more good”.

Sustainability and green design are always fundamental to our design practice. Our commitment is to bring strong streak of sustainability running through the persona of each project, colouring every aspect of development.

At Besten, we are committed towards a value added approach to project design, quantifying and verifying the benefits of green design practices employed in every project, and deliver the benefits of sustainable growth by promoting green design concepts, technologies and design practices in the construction and operation of projects.

Besten is committed to spread the awareness of sustainable or green design principles and the resultant decreased costs due to less raw material consumption and decreased long term energy costs, which are becoming increasingly important with rising water and energy prices.

While the definition for sustainable design may differ, we design our projects with seven fundamental green design principles in mind. They are:

● Optimize Site Potential ● Optimize Energy Use ● Conserve Water ● Optimize Building Space ● Optimize Material Use ● Enhance Indoor Environment Quality ● Design for Ease of Operation and Maintenance
