Green Design & Building
One of the driving forces in all of my projects was, and is, the desire to incorporate natural, environmentally friendly and recycled materials. In today’s design solutions, it has become easier and more cost effective to incorporate many “green” and “energy efficient” products into residential and commercial projects. Through the leadership of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), “Green Building” has become a more understandable and through Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) quantifiable goal. The “Energy Star” rating for new appliances and mechanical systems provides guidelines and standards for energy efficient product selections.
The future of our environment depends on achieving a more neutral carbon footprint for all new as well as existing buildings.
