Md. Shahrior Alam, Dr. Syed Ishtiaq Ahmad.





ABSTRACT: This paper will show the environmental impact of a building from its construction phase to the end of its life i.e. demolition. Here mainly the emission of CO_2 is taken into consideration. As the global warming is most serious issue for environment, we are very much concern about the emission of CO_2 from different industries. However, emission from a building for its entire life cycle is seldom taken seriously. Since, there huge number of building in modem city like Dhaka, if possible any reduction in CO_2 emission will make a great contribution to reduce overall CO_2 emission and compare use of brick chips and stone chips. This thesis categorically estimates the CO_2 emission from various building plans for its entire life, which hopefully help us in guiding the reduction of CO_2 emission form a building. Two 6 storied residential building in Dhaka has been analyzed with stone and brick chips of same area of construction. The environmental impact for a 60 years life time has been calculated.
