Green Benefits of Design/Build:
The good news for home owners committed to a cleaner, more sustainable environment is that there is an ever wider array of green options in building materials, advanced energy systems, and innovative heating and ventilating techniques.
The even better news for all of us is that some of these methods and materials are becoming more cost-effective compared to conventional building practices, and a wise selection of green options is easily justified on the basis of cost alone. Aside from any one technique, the best path to a sustainable project is our quality design/build approach, in which we integrate the materials and systems that will meet your green objectives.
Green Starts with Good Design...
A well designed home is green from the very start. Good design minimizes energy use with a thoughtful arrangement of the rooms that promotes natural air flow. And with placement of windows that takes advantage of the sunlight of each season requiring less heating and cooling. But more importantly, by meeting your needs and assuring your comfort, a successful design only needs to be built once.
...And Builds with Quality Materials
We leverage good design by using only quality materials and systems, such as energy-efficient windows and advanced insulating materials that reduce undesirable gain and loss of heat with fewer air-born chemicals or allergens. And with the correct systems properly installed, you can conserve water, use less energy to heat and cool your home, and eliminate indoor pollutants for a more enjoyable and healthier living environment.
Design/build provides tightly coordinated management of the project from initial concept through completion, resulting in fewer do-overs, better use of materials, and less construction waste.
