SUSTAINABILITY AND GREEN BUILDING
We believe a project should be designed to fit the context it is in.
That project's utilization of methods and materials compatible with green thinking, leading to its subsequent sustainability is every much a part of the context as what the design and architecture is.
Roofing and framing material, insulation choices, siding and trim materials, mechanical systems (including traditional Energy Star rated equipment and appliances, solar power, and geothermal heating) site orientation, window selections and glass use, site water use are all typical considerations when planning for your project.
