Green Building and Sustainable Construction Methods: A Brief Summary
Sustainable building describes the design and construction methods that focus on energy and water efficiency, sustainable resources, and healthy and affordable living spaces. Building with these ideas in mind reduces the home’s monthly and life cycle costs while improving a healthy environment with efficiency and durability.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System sets the standards of green building for the construction community. By following their guidelines, home owners can take advantage of lower operating costs and higher asset values and qualify for tax rebates saving them money in the short term and long term!
Building homes that are sustainable and ‘green’ improves the overall construction industry and benefits the homeowners with better quality homes, lower energy costs, and healthier environments. Everybody wins!
