Abstract

As international considerations concerning the environment increase, various concrete efforts have been attempted, and in response to this, KGBCC (Korean Green Building Certification Criteria) was developed and has operated since 2002. The objective of this study is to research residents' understanding regarding KGBCC and conduct comparative research on residents' satisfaction level and the cause of dissatisfaction concerning KGBCC assessment standards, based on KGBCC-certified apartment complex and general apartment complex. For the research, a questionnaire regarding the awareness of the KGBCC, satisfaction level, and cause of dissatisfaction were conducted with residents of a KGBCC-certified apartment complex and a general apartment complex in the Samsan district, Incheon. The survey results were compared and analyzed, and improvements to the KGBCC are suggested.
