What results can I expect from Sustainable building?
Sustainable Building follows the tenets included in the definition of sustainability: “Meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs,” sustainable building and construction practices can add up to a measurable result, known as the Total Sustainability Value. This value can include:
- Optimizing energy efficiencies
- Reducing costs
- Enhancing brand value
- Planning for future code and regulation changes
Sustainable building respects local, cultural, and geographically specific building design and construction techniques. A sustainable building protects natural resources, adds value to a community, and enhances the infrastructure of a city.
