IMPLEMENTATION OF GREEN BUILDING LEED RATING CONCEPTS IN EXICTING LIBRARY BUILDING
Over recent years, there has been a great increase in the understanding of sustainable development and “green” Issues. Engineering responsibilities for the environment are currently governed by laws controlling environmental Matters. These are designed to ensure that the industry conducts its business in an environmentally friendly Fashion. More importantly, these regulations have begun to form a culture in the industry where green awareness is at the heart of the project, rather than a late “adorn”.

The provision of suggestions is to increase the library’s LEED Rating. In this thesis, the green building concepts, advantages of LEED rating norms requirements are discussed. The application of LEED green building rating system leading to certification points for SRM LIBRARY BUILDING by using Assessment of Green building norms. For creating Green building some significant suggestions are general planning, green technology and its benefit, for saving energy its types of light, specification, quantity and cost, for improvingIndoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and then for improving materials and resources- alternative eco-friendly materials are discussed.
