Buildings in the U.S. account for 40% of total energy consumption. They are responsible for 40% of the total carbon dioxide emissions. Sustainability and ecological soundness in building design are no longer issues that can be ignored.
Many simple decisions that carry no additional costs to the building owner can greatly affect the overall carbon footprint of a building. We routinely include no and low cost sustainable features in the design of our projects.
