- Site Selection
- Design and Planning
- Structural systems
- Material Selection
- eco-friendly materials
- Energy Efficiency
- Water Conservation
- Waste Management
- Indoor Environmental Quality
- Education and Awareness
Choose a location that minimizes environmental impact, such as brownfield sites or areas with existing infrastructure to reduce land use. Consider proximity to public transportation and amenities to promote walkability
Natural resources include
- Sustainable Timber
- Low voc paints
- Geopolymer Concrete
- Natural Fiber Composites
Opt for eco-friendly building materials, such as recycled or locally sourced materials, to reduce carbon footprint.
The structural system of a high-rise building plays a crucial role in supporting the building's weight, resisting lateral loads such as wind and earthquakes, and ensuring the overall stability and safety of the structure
Use Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology to create a digital representation of the building, enabling efficient resource management.
DESIGN & PLANNING
Incorporate water-saving fixtures like low-flow toilets, faucets, and showers. Harvest rainwater for irrigation
Effective insulation, high-performance windows, and energy-efficient HVACIncorporate renewable energy sources like solar panels, wind turbines, or geothermal systems
Encourage recycling and reuse of materials on-site. Minimize packaging waste
The Burj Khalifa, Dubai's most iconic structure, is defined by technology and efficiency. Smart sensors optimize air quality, lighting, and temperatures.
10 floors of serviced corporate offices and 40 floors of serviced apartments, Pakistan's highest located terraced restaurant, a double-decker high speed elevator, and a shopping mall
The current tallest building in Pakistan is the Bahria Icon Tower in Karachi. Upon its completion, it changed the skyline of Karachi with its 62 floors and a height to its spire tip of (896 ft)
Capital Tower in Singapore include, Motion detectors in the elevator lobby and restrooms detect room occupancy so that energy is only used when people are occupying those areas.
In conclusion, the construction of a high-rise smart building using natural resources involves incorporating sustainable practices throughout the process. Key considerations include site selection, eco-friendly material choices, energy efficiency, water conservation, waste management, smart technology integration, indoor environmental quality, education, and certification. By adopting these measures, high-rise smart buildings can minimize environmental impact, optimize resource usage, and enhance sustainability for a greener future.
