Integrated procedures for sustainability in buildings' roofs

Luma Mohammad Yahya, Maysaa Moffeq Alobaidi, Maha Akrem Alhankawi


Sustainability with its environmental, social, and economic dimensions has been an important aspect in many areas, including buildings and architecture. It shows the importance of the environmental dimension to ensure compatibility and conservation of resources for the other generation through the application of a set of integrated Procedures, this paper tries to investigate of integrated processors followed by designers in the roofing of their buildings to achieve sustainable, The theoretical framework of the paper is based on previous studies to determine the concept of sustainable building design and its particular in roofing design and comprehends is achieved for sample sustainable buildings to obtain a set of technical and formality that adopted by designers to achieve sustainability.
