What is Green Building?
Sustainable Construction or Green Buildings define the ways in which science, governments and construction professionals collaborate to make less of a negative impact on the environment. It uses renewable sources of energy, and promotes biodiversity and recycled local materials that cost less to transport and help curb CO2 emissions. Its biggest task is building ‘Management Systems’ that help to optimize the value of a structure throughout its life-cycle; from site selection, design, construction, operation, and maintenance, to renovation and demolition.
Global Sustainability Goals have led to the development of Green Building Movement (i.e.) development of Green Building Rating system in various parts of the world.
Green Building in its design, construction or operation, reduces or eliminates the negative impacts and create positive impacts on climate change and natural resources and improve our quality of life.
Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) is the first performance-based system in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, developed for assessing and rating buildings and infrastructure for their sustainability impacts.
Switzel International, a licensed service provider from GSAS, offers Consultancy services and technical support to Main Consultants and Contractors in order to achieve the desired certification level of their projects.

Switzel International delivers 5D models when a construction project is ready to be closed- out. The “As-Built” BIM model contains all relevant building component information such as product data and details, maintenance/operation manuals, cut sheet specifications, photos, warranty data, web links to online sources of the product, manufacturer information and contacts.
This information-centric database is made globally accessible to the users/owners through a customized, proprietary secure, web-based environment. The accuracy of 5D BIM aids facility managers in the operation and maintenance of the facility throughout its life cycle.
Software used: Integrated Facility Management Software for complete Operations & Maintenance stage.
Construction Management (CM) is a professional service that uses specialized, project management techniques to oversee the planning, design, and construction stages of a project, from its beginning to its end. The purpose of CM is to control a project’s time / delivery, cost and quality—sometimes referred to as a project management triangle or “triple constraints. CM is compatible with all project management systems including design-bid-build, design-and-build projects.
Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) – A CEMP helps to ensure that construction work considers aspects of environmental protection within the context of compliance with local legislation and minimization of the impacts on humans and the environment. A CEMP allows a proactive approach in controlling potentially polluting activities to prevent adverse public health impacts, nuisance and hazards to the natural and human environment.
