Our mission statement did not specifically mention "Green Construction", however we want to be known for our innovative design and construction. This includes of course looking at sustainability of buildings, their environmental footprints and their energy effectiveness. Green design can take many forms and there is no fixed template. Every situation is different, but we look in our designs for green possibilities.
It starts with design and it requires a commitment from all parties to the idea of providing a green design. There might be cost implications, or spatial compromises or long term break even points. But it all starts with an idea.
In the past we published several posts on being green. Below we added the links – please feel free to read them. They may give you ideas for your home.
