What is Green Building?

Many clients wonder what Green Building truly entails. It is a "Whole Systems" approach for designing and constructing. There are three main areas where this approach manifests.

  • Energy/Water Efficiency – Optimize the design with the lowest consumption in regards to gas, electric and water.
  • Resource Conservation – Could we use recycled material, or materials sustainably produced?
  • Indoor Air Quality – Choosing products with low or no VOCs (volitile organic compounds).

As technology and pricing catches up with demand, my hope is that all of my projects can be Green. Ultimately it is up to you, the client, and it is my job to offer you the choices so you can make an informed decision about how Green you want to be.
