What is an environment-friendly building?

A green, environment-friendly building can be defined as a building that is considered within the framework of its life cycle, starting with the choice of land; it is designed with a sense of social and environmental responsibility, and is suitable to the climate and specific local conditions. These buildings do not consume more energy than is needed and prefer renewable energy sources; they are sensitive to ecosystems and use environment-friendly materials that do not generate waste.

The “green building” status depends on energy and water usage, location choice, design, innovation, ecological building materials, construction technique, and selective approach to the reuse of waste materials.

Environment-Friendly (Green Building) Certification
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – LEED

The LEED certification system was developed by the USGBC in 1998 for environment-friendly buildings.
The LEED certification system evaluates the performance of a building and helps it meet its sustainability targets.

Certification Prerequisites

  • * Sustainable grounds: prevention of construction pollution
  • * Water efficiency: decreased water consumption
  • * Energy and the atmosphere: basic commissioning and approval, minimum energy performance, basic fluid management
  • * Materials and resources: collection of recyclable wastes
  • * Interior quality of life: minimum level of interior air quality, cigarette smoke control


LEED for Homes evaluation system is a green building evaluation and certification system developed by USGBC for low- and mid-rise houses and buildings. Certified environment-friendly buildings not only use energy and water efficiently, they also address the health and comfort of dwellers. The design of environment-friendly buildings plans for factors that directly affect human health such as high-quality indoor air, natural lighting, temperature and humidity control, and waste management, and aims to leave the end-user a cleaner environment through methods employed during construction. It has been observed that individuals who live or work in environment-friendly buildings get sick less often compared to other buildings and exhibit higher work performance.

  • During and after construction, utmost care has been shown to protect natural life at the construction site. A high percentage of land at the site will be planted, and the aim is to select locally adapted plants to keep water and chemical fertilizer use to a minimum.
  • Water mountings and vitrified surfaces in the wet areas of the buildings have high water efficiency. International standards have guided the selection of these materials, and the aim has been to minimize overall costs of the buildings and to ensure user comfort.
  • All power-consuming systems in the buildings will be audited in accordance with the commissioning procedures specified by LEED. Inspections will ensure that comply with targeted performance criteria during installation as well as usage.
  • Energy efficiency is a priority with all the lighting, mechanical systems, and house appliances used in the buildings, and Tekfen Homes users are advised to choose ENERGY STAR certified or similar appliances.
  • Systems designed to comply with American energy efficiency standards (ASHRAE 90.1) have been modelled for energy consumption and possible over-consumption has been prevented at the design stage. LEED-certified buildings have a 20-30% greater energy efficiency compared with other buildings. This minimizes the expenses of apartment owners.
  • Indoor sensors will continuously monitor air quality in buildings.
  • Fixtures and lamps in compliance with international energy efficiency standards have been used for interior lighting systems in buildings.
  • Tekfen Homes users have been advised to choose air-conditioning systems with environment-friendly cooling fluids.
  • A comprehensive waste management plan has been prepared for the recycling of construction wastes and a series of precautions has been taken to protect the soil and prevent erosion during construction.
  • The heat insulation of the buildings has been specially designed in accordance with international standards. Brands with certified and tested types and heat values have been used for all materials.
  • The buildings are designed and constructed to perform at the highest level during earthquakes.
  • All apartments are designed and constructed to be resilient to external factors such as humidity, infestation, thermal fluctuations, condensation, and natural phenomena.
  • The indoors comfort of users has been a top priority. Air-conditioning inside the buildings comply with international standards, and construction chemicals (such as paints, primers, glass putty, etc.) used indoors have been carefully selected for low VOC levels as a health precaution.
  • The design of the buildings makes maximum use of natural daylight. This decreases energy consumption while exerting a positive effect on inhabitants.

HEP Istanbul

There are two separate certifications at HEP Istanbul for the blocks and the row houses. High blocks receive LEED-NC (New buildings) certification, while low-rise row houses receive LEED for Homes certification.

Green Building Technical Information

Efficient water fittings have been used throughout the buildings for water efficiency, resulting in a 20%-drop in water consumption. Plants with low demand for water have been preferred for landscaping. The HVAC system and lightning have been designed to maximize the energy performance of the buildings. Glass panes minimize heating load. Green roofs have been used, and exterior lighting creates no light pollution. There are parking racks for bicycles.


A considerable part of waste material generated during construction is sent to recycling/reuse. Permanent construction material used in the buildings has been provided by local companies and contain varying percentages of recycled material. In order to preserve the interior air quality during construction, chemicals such as paints, primers, glues, etc. have low levels of VOC. Door sealing tests have been conducted to prevent air leaks in buildings. Hallways on each floor have waste rooms with separate containers for recyclable wastes. The local municipality of the district collects recyclable wastes separately. The following materials are collected for recycling: paper, carton, glass, plastics, and metals.

Common Areas

The gates, access roads to blocks, block entrances, and courtyards have appropriate coverings for pedestrians, cars for the disabled, and strollers; elevators suitable for cars for the disabled allow for safe circulation of both pedestrians and the disabled. The landscaped green areas of the complex and all of the garden level are closed to vehicles. Smoking in common areas is forbidden; smoking is allowed only in specially designated outdoor areas that are eight meters from buildings.

The management of the complex invites volunteers of Tekfen HEP Istanbul Project to pool their cars as part of the “Take Me, Too” program within the framework of sustainable environment awareness as defined by LEEDS certification.


  • * Decreases private automobile use and saves energy.
  • * Decreases vehicle emissions leading to air pollution and greenhouse gases.
  • * Decreases adverse effects of oil extraction and refining on the environment.

In addition, less cars on the roads mean less pollution and less traffic congestion!

With its green buildings, HEP ISTANBUL offers its residents a healthier life.
