GEM Sustainability Certification Rating Program is based upon BEE ECBC 2017 and NBC 2016. Through this initiative, ASSOCHAM do award the Sustainability Certification Rating to Housing, Urban Developments, Residential, Commercial, Hotels, College, Universities, Schools, Factory buildings and related developments.

All existing, new and upcoming buildings can participate in this program. 

GEM Sustainability Certification Rating Program –

GEM Sustainability Certification Rating Program aims to address the sustainability of a given development throughout its lifecycle from design through construction to operation. GEM Sustainability Certification Reference Guide provides design guidance and detailed requirements for rating a project’s potential performance.

Project team can go for a Certification of Intent (Pre-certification / Provisional Certification) rating during pre-design, design or construction stages of the project and Final Certification rating when the building is complete.

 GEM Sustainability Certification Rating levels –

GEM Sustainability Certification Rating is organized into Twenty Eight Principles that are fundamental to a more sustainable development. There are some Essential and Suggested requirements of each Principle. Points are awarded for each Suggested requirement achieved.

There is a 0-130 point scale. Project will achieve GEM 1 to GEM 5 rating levels as per the requirements fulfilled and scores achieved by the project. This depends upon the project design which includes building architectural and elevation design, materials used during construction, HVAC, lighting and plumbing system designs, water and energy consumption of the building.

To achieve a GEM Sustainability Certification Rating, all Essential Principle requirements must be fulfilled along with a minimum number of Principle points. GEM 5 will be the highest achievable rating level in this program.

Key benefits of the certification –

  1. Review of all design documents such as Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Landscape by Sustainability experts for further value addition from green building perspective.
  2. Energy and water efficient building design that will reduce the energy and water consumption of the building.
  3. Design of a building that will utilize maximum daylight, fresh air and provide healthy environment to the building occupants.
  4. Sustainability Certification rating will give additional marketing mileage to the projects over other conventional buildings.

What was your Target sector“Industries , Green Buildings ,gov sector, affordable houses,  retail societies”
Mrs. Neetu Jain
Challenges faced during the Journey“When we started no one was concerned abt cooling all were req waterproofing, testing facilities were not there to proove yr performance & product specs . Unawareness abt the tech and climate sensitivity was the biggest challenge”.
What was the problem which was being targeted“extremeThermal discomfort, and raise in electricity bills , city temp increase is the main problem which we targeted; cool roof gives drastic thermal comfort & reduces heat stress”.
How did it help to eradicate the particular problem – “In factories sheds and in houses without AC it makes the temp bearable increasing the thermal comfort, reduces the AC consumption, thus reducing the electricity bills”.
