Building construction tends to use up a large quantity of natural resources. Around 60 percent of the raw materials, not counting fuel or food, used in the country’s entire economy are used for construction purposes.  By salvaging building materials, you’ll save energy as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions due to the fact that you’ll be reducing the need to extract raw materials, process them and then have them shipped.

There are many stores that now sell salvaged materials that you can use for your home construction project, including drywall, kitchen countertops, steel, carpeting, plastic lumber, insulation, glass tiles and more. Materials that have been salvaged for future use are required to have a “recycled” label on them so that you know that you are investing in green building materials.

If you are looking for a way to become more environmentally-friendly, then use green building materials for your construction. Contact us at Trilogy Partners for additional home building advice.

In today’s society, many companies are trying to go green for preservation of the environment. Also, many companies are making their building feature novel architectural designs while doing so. These green architecture designs listed below are just some of the ideas that are spreading like wildfire.

Buildings are now being built from sustainable materials. This is better for the environment because it reduces pollution. Also, a lot of buildings now have water collection devices. So when it rains, natural water will be collected, giving companies the chance to reuse this water for other purposes.

A pivotal feature for this type of architecture is buildings that feature solar powered panels. These panels are installed at the top of a building. Using the sun’s rays, electricity is generated. This is an efficient, green way of keeping a building running in terms of its electrical appliances.

Sun shading is another important design incorporated into green buildings. These shading devices help reduce building peak heat gain, which improves natural lighting in the building. Thanks to these green architecture designs, the environment will not suffer as much. For more information on green agriculture, contact us today.
