PROTOTYPE BUILDING DESIGN
A prototype is the original model, a sample on which to base future designs.
The (2) story standalone 12,000 sf slab on grade building will feature a concrete tilt wall or block exterior, structural steel posts and beams, poured concrete decks and stairs, (3) stop elevator, brick face facade, high efficiency glass and partially sloped EPDM roof.
Our sustainable architectural design uses a “Janus-faced art form” simultaneously looking forward and back. We want a build a modern building with traditional forms that will revive the glorious past and also represent high modern sensibilities making a bold statement in the community.
The exterior has a carefully scaled and shaped facade with brick detailing and gleaming glass, while the interior is flush with millwork, vaulted ceilings and expressive windowscapes.
The building’s decorative architectural elements are concentrated on the symmetrical facade. Built on a concrete slab, the facade features shaped granite blocks at the base of the wall. These blocks project slightly from the wall and into the bay openings, protecting the softer brick from damage. The facade is veneered with wire-cut brick laid in running bond. A band of bricks composed of alternating headers and stretchers is laid vertically on the stone blocks. All of the wall openings and the corners of the facade are highlighted by shallow projecting brickwork. The facade is dominated on the first story by rectangular window and door openings. The metal segmented doors close against metal jams that wrap the sides and the top of the deep opening. To either side of the doors are wall sconces that illuminate the facade and walking areas. Above each door opening is a band of brick delineating the lintel. The same vertical brick-pattern found at the base of the wall is used here. The openings have been infilled with brick forming wide window openings containing two double-hung windows. High Efficiency operable windows and doors, shaded by awnings on the first floor, will welcome the fresh summer breeze and keep out the winter chill, to ensure a comfortable inviting atmosphere for all sporting seasons.

Green Building Construction Criteria
Green building using a process that is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition.
Components of Green Building
There are many elements of green buildings and these practices and strategies aim to reduce the environmental impact of building.
1) Sustainable Site Design
“Sustainability” and “green” are often used interchangeably. According to USGBC, sustainability means creating places that are environmentally responsible, healthful, just, equitable, and profitable. Greening the built environment means looking holistically at natural, human, and economic systems and finding solutions that support quality of life for all.
- Utilize infill site as it has great green building potential and environmental benefits.
- Reduce urban sprawl and destruction of valuable land, habitat and green space.
- Preserve key environmental assets through careful examination of each site.
- Engage in a design and construction process that minimizes site disturbance and which values, preserves and actually restores or regenerates valuable habitat, green space and associated eco-systems that are vital to sustaining life.
2) Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Energy efficiency is the first step to green. Energy efficiency helps to lower operating costs and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. According to Energy Star, it is important to rely on proven methods to ensure that buildings are designed to maximize energy efficiency, and that they actually perform as intended once they’re operational.
Here are some strategies to reduce energy use
- Passive Solar Design : Passive solar design uses the sun’s energy for the heating and cooling of living spaces. It’s called passive solar design as it does not involve the use of mechanical and electrical devices
- Daylighting – Use of daylighting so that during the day natural light provides effective internal lighting.
- Use of solar water heating systems
- Use Energy Star certified energy efficient appliances, office equipment, lighting and HVAC systems.
- Maximize the use of renewable energy and other low impact energy sources.
ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency. Learn more about ENERGY STAR program.
Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) accelerates development and facilitates deployment of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and market-based solutions that strengthen U.S. energy security, environmental quality, and economic vitality.
3) Water Efficiency
Water is precious and the demand for water is ever increasing. Hence it is very essential to use available water more efficiently. Reducing the comsumption of water is one of the major factors of green building.
According to the EPA, “Water efficiency is the smart use of our water resources through water-saving technologies and simple steps we can all take around the house. Using water efficiently will help ensure reliable water supplies today and for future generations.”
- Designing dual plumbing that recycles water in toilet flushing or by using water for washing of the cars.
- Minimize waste water by utilizing water conserving fixtures such as ultra-low flush toilets and low-flow shower heads.
- Portable water purification devices or Point of use water treatment and heating improves both water quality and energy efficiency
- Reuse of water using methods like rainwater harvesting and gray water irrigation and storm water management.
- Apply the FEMP Best Management Practices for Water Conservation
EPA’s WaterSense Program : Save water and protect the environment by choosing WaterSense labeled products in your home, yard, and business and taking simple steps to save water each day.
4) Materials Efficiency
Designing with industrial materials and recycling Construction and Demolition (C&D) materials generated from projects leads to more sustainable buildings. (http://www.epa.gov/osw/conserve/imr/pdfs/recy-bldg.pdf)
- Use recycled-content building materials.
- Develop and implement ways to reduce the amount of materials used and waste generated through the implementation of a construction waste minimization plan.
- Use of re-usable, renewable, non-toxic and recyclable building products.
- Use salvaged building materials.
EPA’s Industrial Materials Recycling Program provides information on how industrial materials, such as coal combustion products, foundry sand, and construction and demolition debris, can be recycled to meet the material needs of our construction industry.
5) Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality also referred to as Indoor Environmental Quality or IEQ is one of the main component of green building.
As per Wikipedia Definition “Indoor air quality is a term which refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants.”
- Indoor Air Quality aims to reduce chemicals like volatile organic compounds, or VOCs that are higher in indoor air than outdoor air.
- Use building materials and products that do contain or release VOCs.
- Choose construction materials and products with zero or low VOC emissions during the design and construction process to improve IAQ.
- Use natural daylighting.
- Provide a smoke free building.
- Ensue adequate Ventilation systems
EPA’s Indoor Environments Program offers several IAQ tools and programs designed to protect occupant health, promote comfort and productivity, and enhance the durability of structures.
