Book Details

GRIHA for Existing Buildings rating is an integrated green building rating tool to evaluate the performance of existing buildings and provide solutions for enhanced energy and water efficiency, increased thermal & visual comfort, and decreased operational & maintenance costs. While focusing on the above, the tool has been developed with the underlying objectives of simplicity of execution, economic viability and alignment with national and international codes and standards. The rating endeavours to cover various categories of buildings across diverse climatic zones of the country. The rating system is a 100 point system consisting of 12 criteria categorized under seven sections such as Site Parameters, Maintenance & Housekeeping, Energy, Water, Human Health & Comfort, and Social Aspects. The minimum points required for certification is 25.

About GRIHA:
GRIHA Rating (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) is a green building rating tool which evaluates the resource efficiency of a building throughout its lifecycle. It is a unique tool that takes cognizance of several building codes ; and induces social and environmental responsibilities amongst multiple building stakeholders. GRIHA Rating has been recognized as India’s national rating tool to evaluate GHG reduction from habitats, as part of GOI’s NDCs.
