Evaluating Sustainability of Building Regulations in Riyadh Using the Scale of (LEED) .

Auther : Dr. Mosaed A. AL-Sadhan - Abdulaziz A. AL-Masned

     The city of Riyadh - the capital of the Kingdome of Saudi Arabia (KSA) - is witnessing an extensive and wide urban development within its geographical surroundings. Riyadh City Council implements a construction code for building licenses that requires, among others, the provision of proper lightning, ventilations, safety, and security. However, the international awareness in the environment and emphasis on the efficiency of resources has pushed for global attention to adopt plans and programs for the concept of green sustainable buildings, with international criteria for measurable systems. The research problem stems from the fact that the present construction regulations and systems in the city of Riyadh did not adopt the global green building concept. In specific, the sustainability factor was rarely highlighted. This research aims to analyze the existing construction regulations and systems in the city of Riyadh, by reviewing its main and detailed articles. In addition, the construction systems will be revised in accordance with the most reputable global construction systems for energy savings and environmental protection. Based on the review of global criteria, the LEED scale was used as an analytical tool in this study. The output of this paper will contribute significantly to the development of sustainable and environmentally friendly buildings.
