About Us

Full-Service Consulting Engineering with Education.

     

We specialize in cost-effective, sustainable design of a variety of project types in Bangladesh. These include:

  • Green Factory/Industrial factory

    Green Factory means a low-carbon economic era-type facility equipped with eco-friendly design and manufacturing processes that efficiently improve greenhouse gas emission, environmental pollution and energy consumption.

  • Commercial buildings

    commercial buildings referred to as ultra-low energy buildings. Natural ventilation methods, such as solar heating or thermal mass cooling, use passive systems, rather than mechanical, to supply outdoor air to a building's interior for ventilation and cooling.

  • Educational buildings

    Green Building designed to educate building users about green building design and often broader themes about the connection between buildings and their surrounding ecosystems.

  • Healthcare facilities

  • Advanced Technology buildings

  • Institutional facilities

Our services include mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) consulting engineering, building commissioning, CFD modeling, lighting design, technology integration, energy services and 3D modeling. We administer comprehensive sustainable building services engineering as a single coordinated package to our clients. With well-equipped training facilities, we are well positioned to serve our clients. Our passion is engineering green buildings that work.

A Focus on Sustainability

BGBA is a leader in sustainable design. We are a longtime member and active in the U.S. Green Building Council, the premier green building organization in the United States.

BGBA's staff includes over 30 LEED Green Associate APs-2, and we have collaborated with clients and owners in the development of over 4 LEED certified and/or registered projects. BGBA takes particular pride in the energy efficient and sustainable building technologies that we incorporate into our projects, such as radiant heating and cooling, daylight and rainwater harvesting, and photovoltaics.

Health Benefits:

Health benefits from green building are greater than just a better natural feeling. From the National Institute of Building Sciences’ “Whole Building Design Guide”, here are some health statistics to think about (Notes in footer) US EPA ranks indoor air pollution among top five environmental risks. Unhealthy air is found in up to 30% of new and renovated buildings W.H.O. reports that indoor air pollution causes 14 times more deaths than outdoor air pollution (2.8 million lives) of hundreds of EPA-regulated chemicals, only ozone and sulfur dioxide are more prevalent outdoor than indoors 20 percent of all housing in the US has too much lead dust or chippings (causes kidney and red blood cell damage, impairs mental and physical development, may increase high blood pressure) about a quarter of the nation’s largest industrial plants and water treatment facilities are in serious violation of pollution standards at any one time an estimated 7 million Americans are made sick annually by contaminated tap water; in some rare cases this results in death These risks can be reduced and conditions improved by following green building concepts in: regulating natural air ventilation and quality non-toxic, natural and renewable materials regulated water and efficient appliances

Maintenance:

Maintaining a building is important to ensuring it remains sustainable and profitable. Like one would do with a car, as the building ages, it is important to check areas of the building to make sure they are still at an acceptable quality level. However, the nice thing about green building is that even though initial costs of implementation are higher, long-term maintenance is often much less of a hassle! Consider the idea of design concepts taking into account the increased usage of natural light and temperature control services–the more natural used, the less maintenance of and dependency on furnaces, air conditioners, and lighting systems you will have to worry about, as they will be used less. Smaller scale maintenance, such as cleaning the building, can also be chosen and used to improve indoor air quality, reduce water pollution, and maintain environmentally sustainable concepts. Some notions to keep in mind when choosing cleaning products are: choose less hazardous products to minimize negative impacts on human health, air quality and reduce water pollution avoid products with corrosive, carcinogenic and other irritating or volatile organic chemicals this will reduce hazardous waste costs when the time comes to dispose or any leftover product in the appropriate manner buy cleaners with returnable or recyclable packaging to reduce waste, or buy them in bulk or concentrates–with refillable/reusable containers if available pay careful attention that excess product is disposed of appropriately. Contact the product company or a local institute for information if you are unsure.

Reduce Waste:

Waste can be reduced on several levels by taking a green approach to building. In terms of construction, using the materials listed above helps divert waste from landfills. With the appropriate green-building measures, waste reduction carries on to the operation of a building as well. on site waste management, such as separating garbage, recycling and compost centralized wastewater treatment systems reuse wastewater from dishwashing or washing machines however, these are costly and use a lot of energy–there are many smaller steps to be taken as an alternative, such as low power showerheads, converting wastewater to fertilizer via a biogas plant, and more making it easy for occupants to reduce energy waste as a part of their daily routines, such as intelligent building design to allow them enough light that daytime lights are unnecessary, to mention one option, Ultimately, from diverting waste from landfills in the construction process, to designing efficiently to minimize waste during operation, to ensuring on-site maintenance chooses efficient products and processes, keeping green concepts in mind throughout all stages of building life cycle will contribute to waste reduction. As they are just static structures, buildings aren’t often regarded in great detail unless by an architect, civil planner or something of the sort. However, as described by data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, buildings are responsible for almost half (48%) of all annual greenhouse gas emissions in the U.SA

Ultimately, even the smallest of efforts made in green building can make a large-scale difference to not only the environment, but also health and finances.
