CPWD Guidelines for Sustainable Habitat have been prepared. The guidelines are based on reports of National Mission on Sustainable Habitat by Ministry of Urban Development and draft code on "Approach to Sustainability" as part of NBC 2005. The guidelines are intended to be used by CPWD architect/engineers in day to day decision making process with regard to use and evaluation of materials and technology on sustainability parameters.
The guidelines have been divided into four parts :-
1. Guidelines on Architectural Design and Layout.
2. CPWD Sustainability index and Guidelines for materials.
3. Guidelines for selection of equipment for Electrical and Mechanical Services for sustainable buildings.
4. Guidelines on reuse and recycling of construction and demolition waste.
