Green Home Builders & Commercial Construction

building greenBuilding GREEN is an innovative alternative to traditional building practices that stresses environmental responsibility and energy saving practices.

Whether you are putting an addition to your home, doing a total renovation, building a brand new home or condominiums, green home building saves you operational money and provides you with a healthier living environment. The same is true for your workplace--whether it is renovating your offices or building new office space—a green office building saves operational money and provides a healthier work environment for your employees.


Building GREEN is best categorized as the combination of two key elements: sustainable materials and energy savings.

Sustainable materials are building materials that are renewable and do not contribute to harmful health or environmental effects. Here are some examples:

  • Bamboo Flooring / Reclaiming Hardwood Flooring
  • Recycled Tile (ceramic & glass)
  • Recycled Wallboard
  • Recycled Insulation (cellulose)
  • Recycled Carpet
  • Sustainably harvested wood trim
  • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) Paints, Caulking & Adhesives

Energy Saving practices and materials help reduce your overall operational costs for heating, cooling, lighting, appliance and water use. Some examples of energy saving techniques include:

  • Cellulose or Icynene Insulation
  • Energy Star® Windows
  • Energy Star® Appliances
  • Energy Star® Lighting
  • Dual flush toilets
  • Low flow faucets
  • Tankless Hot Water Heaters
  • High Efficiency HVAC
  • Air Sealing

Combining sustainable materials and energy saving techniques for energy efficient homes and offices not only saves you money, it also creates a healthier living environment for you while reducing “greenhouse” gases for the community in which you live and work.  It’s easy.  It’s painless. And it makes a big difference!
