The built environment has a vast impact on the natural environment, human health and our economy. It’s also where we consume an enormous amount of energy — heating and cooling alone account for 40% of our greenhouse gas emissions.

By adopting green building and LEED strategies, such as: low-flow and high-efficiency fixtures, HVAC systems with energy recovery units and variable refrigerant volume heat pumps, weatherization, low-VOC paint, Advanced Home Energy Upgrades, high U-factor windows, Energy Star-rated appliances, sustainable construction materials, energy efficient insulation, drought tolerant plants, etc., we can maximize economic, environmental and energy performance.

Green design and construction methods can be integrated at any stage, new construction, remodeling, renovation and deconstruction.
