Connecting Building & Design
The design, principles of building science, materials selection and incorporation of green building practices are all interconnected. And, the majority of costs are locked in before construction begins. Retaining a builder at the start of your project will ensure an integrated approach that pays off.
Our Homes and businesses are the major source of demand for energy. These buildings produce by-product greenhouse gas emissions. Changing the way we design, build and remodel can make a significant difference in the global warming crisis.
Effective design can reduce energy consumption by 50 to 80 percent. There are many approaches to reducing environmental impact and improving your quality of life. We recommend discussing energy-efficient strategies with your architect, designer and builder.
