Green building is the way of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle from construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and deconstruction. This practice enlarges and complements the conventional building design concerns of energy, water, materials, carbon emission, economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Hence, these practices have the sole role in sustainable as well as high-performance building. Outdated methods of building or renovation a home uses a huge amount of resources, which contain a significant amount of carbon emission and many of them nonrenewable and toxic—and pay little attention to the impact the home’s site have on the landscape. Herein, we elucidate a green building optimization for low-income people with the help of Autodesk Revit as well as EDGE green building analyzer. We designed a sustainable building model by using these tools based on energy efficiency, water efficiency, locally available and low carbon content materials, generate less waste and afford improved spaces for inhabitants, as compared to a traditional building. Embodied energy analysis, material flow analysis, carbon emission analysis and cost optimization are carried out to produce an optimum result.
