As a design-build company we feel it is our responsibility to continually educate ourselves with the latest innovations in sustainable design and building practices.
There are many ways to improve an existing building's energy efficiency when remodeling or implement energy efficient products and systems when building new. Passive systems like high performance windows, insulation improvements and properly vented roofs or active systems such as photovoltaic solar panels or on demand water heaters can be evaluated during the design process.
Selecting the right products and systems will reduce energy and water needs, will use materials efficiently and in turn have reduced impacts on the environment and promote a healthy indoor environment.
Choosing to build a green home that is less harmful to the environment that will provide a healthy environment for its occupants is an important consideration to many clients. We will be happy to discuss and help you evaluate which choices are right for you.
Our philosophy is to work with you, our client, to create a custom, high-quality project that responds to your needs throughout an efficient, well-managed design and construction process. We believe that by integrating the design and construction process, we can offer our clients the best value for their dollar. We constantly are comparing the cost of the project to the design and the design to the cost, and by working towards the same goal, we can maximize the project for the client. Since the design team and construction team are always working hand in hand, we can save the owner money. This approach provides the client with the best of both worlds by combining creative design and quality craftsmanship.
