What is Green Building?
Green building is the practice of increasing the efficiency with
which buildings and their sites use and harvest energy, water, and
materials thereby reducing building impacts on human health and the
environment. This is achieved through better design, construction,
operation, maintenance, and removal; the complete building life cycle.
How do I begin a green project?
Although it is never too late to implement green practices, it
is best begun when ideas are first formed and before complete
architectural plans are drawn. You will need an architect or designer
and a building contractor to inform you about the construction process,
budgets and to empower you with the knowledge to make wise decisions. We
can direct you to architects and designers that share much our
philosophy if you have not already chosen one.
