|Title||Promoting Green Buildings Practices in Palestine|
|Title in Arabic||تعزيز انشاء المباني الخضراء في فلسطين|
Green construction is a way for the building industry to move towards achieving sustainable development, taking into account environmental, socioeconomic and cultural issues. Differing approaches and differing economic markets lead to different priorities. This research aimed to promoting green building practices in Palestine through identified the challenges, barriers, applications and benefits which affect the implementation of greening construction in Palestine this achieved by studying green building practices in developed and developing countries and through conducting practical case studies, Also suggested specific modifications to conventional building practices to optimize the delivery of cost-efficient green building projects through conducting two simulation model using linear programming method to allocate best method to converse energy and water. As a first step towards contributing to the dissemination of green architecture in Palestine, Mobile application prototype was developed under name (Design manager app.) and its slogan (To manage your green design home). The main function for application is to solve the major constraints facing the spread of green buildings which presented in a lack of awareness and the high cost of green building projects, so this application contains a number of tools to help people in Palestine to build green local Palestinian architecture. The results of this research were summarized to promote green concepts as methodology in building design with all barriers which may be facing this concept especially high cost constraints. In other hand encourage engineers and designers to benefit from using simulation tools to identify the benefits and barriers for implementation green buildings projects, through simulation modes cost and time will be saved and many scenarios will be studied. Finally, this study recommended to benefit from high spread of IT application especially mobile applications, which are the most prevalent tools among people and used it promoting green building practices.
