Green Hospital

CIMS Hospital :Green building-Green Hospital

Green building (also known as green construction or sustainable building) is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort

Although new technologies are constantly being developed to complement current practices in creating greener structures, the common objective is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by:

  • Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources
  • Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
  • Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation

A similar concept is natural building, which is usually on a smaller scale and tends to focus on the use of natural materials that are available locally. Other related topics include sustainable design and green architecture

Green building practices aim to reduce the environmental impact of new buildings. Buildings account for a large amount of land use, energy and water consumption, and air and atmosphere alteration. The building sector alone accounts for 30-40 percent of global energy use. Over 80 percent of the environmentally harmful emissions from buildings are due to energy consumption during the times when the buildings are in use

Why and How CIMS Hospital is a GREEN Building?

Sustainable Sites

  • Erosion & Sedimentation Control

Water Efficiency

  • All Sewage is treated within the site and water is reused for irrigation and flushing – STP (sewage treatment plant) helps reduces fresh water use as well as reduces the load on city drainage lines
  • Rain water harvesting – Provision of percolation well as per the prevailing bye-laws which helps recharge the ground water level
  • Water efficient landscaping, reduce by 30% or more

Energy & Atmosphere

Almost 30% or more of space dedicated to free skylights, gardens and hallways creating one of the most spacious environments to patients among any Indian Hospitals

  • Minimum Energy Performance
  • Fundamental Refrigerant Management
  • Optimize energy performance cost savings assumed (17% – 21%).
  • Reduce Ozone Depletion

Materials & Resources

  • The building structure is a composite structure with all load bearing walls made of fly ash bricks (instead of traditional burnt clay bricks) – Use of recycled material and avoiding erosion of top soil
  • Selection of all equipment with energy efficiency in consideration – capital and maintenance cost always taken into consideration along with energy efficiency measures while selection of all plant and equipment
  • Use of biodegradable material – use of natural stone flooring as much as possible
  • Socio-economic benefit to hundreds of people getting employment during construction during recession as well as during operations of the hospital
  • Entire interior indigenously developed in India Gujarat , Rajasthan , and MP during the recession of 2008-2009( instead of China despite higher cost by Rs 4-5 crores)
  • Building reuse, New construction site
  • Construction waste management-Recycled Fly Ash Bricks
  • Construction waste management, Divert 25% from disposal
  • Recycled Content

Indoor Environmental Quality

  • Use of Natural light – Internal courtyards provided for natural light right in the middle of the building, reducing use of artificial lighting during the day time even in large floor plate
  • Use of biodegradable material – use of natural stone flooring as much as possible
  • Gardens within the hospital creating a fresh source of natural oxygen
  • Skylights and Gardens in ICU and CCU , first of its kind in Asia

Innovation & Design

  • Use of Natural light – Internal courtyards provided for natural light right in the middle of the building, reducing use of artificial lighting during the day time even in large floor plate
  • Gardens within the hospital creating a fresh source of natural oxygen
  • Skylights and Gardens in ICU and CCU , first of its kind in Asia

Outdoor Air Delivery Monitoring

  • Low emitting materials – adhesives & sealants
  • Low emitting materials – Paints
  • Low emitting materials – No use of carpets
  • Low emitting materials – Composite wood & Agrifiber products
  • Indoor chemical & pollutant source control
  • Controllability of Systems, Minimal L lighting
  • Controllability of Systems, thermal comfort with VRS AC system
  • Daylight, daylight 75% of space
  • Views, Skylights in various areas
