Definition of Green Building
Green building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Green building is also known as a sustainable or high performance building.
Why Build Green?
There are many reasons for choosing to build a “green” or “sustainable” building—from the savings provided by its enhanced energy efficiency to the personal satisfaction that comes from being environmentally responsible. Whatever your motivation, T∙A∙H Construction Inc. can provide a practical solution. We have LEED® Accredited Professionals who are ready to assist with the design of your building.
Of course, choosing a sustainable building design makes sense only if it can be delivered within your budget. And our ability to offer Butler® steel buildings makes sustainable building affordable. Butler combines the inherent green benefits of steel with the company’s own green systems and practices. The result is a building that: 1) contains a high percentage of recycled material and is itself recyclable, 2) optimizes the use of raw materials, 3) is energy efficient and 4) can help you achieve LEED® certification.
