Build It Green aims to expose students to problems related to the built environment and to initiate discussion on sustainable design, construction technology, resource optimization, energy efficiency and planning for better infrastructure in cities that would have a lesser negative impact on the environment. We believe that the built environment has always played an important role in the reason behind people gravitating to certain places over others and now more than ever, it is important to consciously plan for the future. We invite all those who have an interest in the fields of sustainability, technology, architecture, planning, construction, energy, business etc. to be a part of the events we have planned.
Proposed activities and events for the club
- Energy modelling and Sustainable Design workshops.
- Field trips to LEED certified buildings, waste water treatment plants etc.
- Talks and panel discussions with professionals in the industry.
- Networking receptions.
