Benefits of green building

Typical building projects throughout the country account for 39 percent of all energy use, 12 percent of all water consumption, 38 percent of all carbon dioxide emissions, and 68 percent of all electricity consumption. As you see, building projects use a huge amount of resources – green building will greatly reduce the consumption of these resources.

As such, green building will help to improve the quality of our air and water, reduce the stream of waste, conserve and restore our natural resources, and help to protect and enhance our ecosystems and biodiversity. Not to mention the reduced operating costs, better life-cycle performance, and improved occupant productivity that green building will result in as well.

Building or remodeling homes tends to result in a huge waste of resources. To reduce the waste of valuable resources and take advantages of the many benefits, consider green building. For more information, contact us at Trilogy Builds today.

  • Shade can help when glass doors just aren’t enough. With a shading device you can minimize any greenhouse effects whilst allowing enough heat through to relax in.
  • White is the best color for any roofing surfaces, due to its ability for repelling heat. This in turn keeps your home cooler and more comfortable.
  • Foliage and water features can really help to keep the atmosphere fresher and cooler. They can also act as shading when needs be as well.
  • Architecture incorporating a chimney effect will allow any warm air to rise whilst retaining a cooler atmosphere below. This should then leave you with a more comfortable environment.

There are many more methods for creating a green building that fully utilities its cool architecture. For more information, or for any other inquiries, then contact our experts at Trilogy Partners  today.
