High efficiency, sustainable and locally sourced materials are just the beginning of the revolution for green building. It is imperative to build with the future in mind, as well as to tread lightly on the land that sustains us. In order to do so, green builders should source local materials while using the best in efficiency and eco-friendly products.
Building with Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) provides the optimum in energy efficiency, durability and air quality. From new windows to high efficiency heating systems, new construction should take advantage of these eco-friendly designs and building options. The use of ICF and 100% recyclable surplus materials contributes to a LEED v3 credit for site development.
Developing relationships with highly skilled partners who share like-minded business goals, will help you achieve new standards for green building. Christiana Cabinetry builds American made cabinetry, which are high quality and expertly crafted in Lancaster County, PA. The cabinets are formaldehyde free, the unique line of stains are VOC compliant and the lumber is sourced from managed lumber whenever possible.
A main priority of the green building revolution is the conservation of natural resources and investing in alternative energy sources. New construction sites concerned with their environmental impact use eco-friendly products, such as solar panels.
