Green Building & Sustainability
Sustainability is the capacity to endure. In the building industry, this concept is something we value and achieve on a daily basis. Environmentally responsible and resource efficient processes used during a building’s life-cycle not only help sustain the planet but also the homes we live in. Green building is nothing new, but the affordability of it is. Renewable energy, high efficiency heating systems and eco-friendly products are just a few possibilities that can help improve quality of life and reduce your carbon footprint. Although some initial cost may be higher than traditional building, the payback period is often short and will save you money in the long run.
We are a Certified Passive House Builder and have all the qualifications to consult on the best approach to being Green for each individual circumstance. We built the first LEED Platinum home in Washington State outside the City of Seattle, and we also built one of the greenest homes on the planet, Heron Hall which is a Certified Living Building. There are many incentives available to building sustainably, it is our standard practice to find solutions and bring a greater level of value to each project. Whatever level of Green you want to achieve, we are here to facilitate the process, meet project goals, and help ensure sustainability for generations to come.
