What is Green Construction? In practical terms, green building is a whole-systems-approach to building that includes:

  • Designing for livable communities – e.g., LRT/Public Transit, Affordable Housing
  • Using sun and site to the building's advantage for natural heating, cooling, and daylighting
  • Landscaping with native, drought-resistant plants and water-efficient practices
  • Building quality, durable structures
  • Reducing and recycling construction and demolition waste
  • Insulating well and ventilating appropriately
  • Incorporating durable, salvaged, recycled, and sustainably harvested materials
  • Using healthy products and building practices
  • Using energy-efficient and water-saving appliances, fixtures and technologies
