Building Science

What began as a keen interest in energy efficient buildings, has evolved into much more. Low energy usage is only one aspect of green building. You are likely to find comments about energy efficiency, sustainable materials, recycled materials, easily renewable resources, indoor air quality, healthy indoor environment, low water usage, waste management during construction, and similar buzz words when asking people what they believe makes a green building. Increasingly, you will find that many people will include comments about the actual location of the project in their definition. We believe green building is a philosophical approach to building for those who have a genuine concern for the environment that all of us share.

You can incorporate many green building principles for very little or no additional costs in your project.  We’ve included information on a few of the possibilities that we have incorporated here.  We invite you to contact us to discuss any of these or other features in more depth.
