What is “Green Building?”
Green Building, also referred to as Green Construction or Sustainable Building, is a process of design and construction that provides an opportunity to use resources more efficiently, while creating healthier and more energy-efficient homes and commercial buildings. The goal of Green Construction is to leave a lighter footprint on the environment through conservation of resources, while balancing energy-efficient, cost-effective and low-maintenance products. The Green philosophy isn’t new but has experienced a rapid growth in recognition by government and consumers alike. A handful of states have already proposed regulatory standards and tax incentives addressing this issue. As the world becomes more focused on the benefits of Green Construction, commercial and residential property owners will face more pressure to incorporate these methods.
Is Green, Sustainable Construction Expensive?
One misconception about Green Construction is that it’s reserved only for large commercial buildings or the most extravagant new homes. This simply isn’t true. Green methods add value and can be very affordable no matter how large or small. Even though some products or methods may cost a little more upfront, the money saved over time far outweighs the initial expense.
