Going green is at the forefront of every consumer’s mind. Customers are more likely to choose a company with a small carbon footprint than one that ignores what’s best for the environment. Eco-friendly commercial construction designs are easy to implement during a commercial remodel and will increase your standing with your customer base. Division 9 Commercial Construction can provide professional recommendations on eco-friendly commercial construction designs.
Green Building Ideas
Division 9 Commercial Construction has experience in performing eco-friendly construction projects. Some of the most common eco-friendly commercial construction projects incorporate the following:
- Sustainable Building Materials
Knowing where your building materials came from is important for sustainability. Using locally sourced materials cuts down on the number of fossil fuels used to transport the materials to the building site. Some building materials, such as bamboo and recycled wood, are also better for the environment.
- Energy Efficient Lights
LED lights are no longer as expensive as they once were. LED lights last longer and use a fraction of the energy than traditional light bulbs do. When performing a commercial remodel, it is easy for Division 9 Commercial Construction to replace your light fixtures to accommodate LED lights.
- Green Roofing
The newest trend in roof designs is a green terrace roof. A green roof is where part of or the entire roof is covered in living plants. Green roofs remove heat from the air and help to cool the temperature of their surroundings. A cooler roof means using less energy during the summer to cool the building down. In addition, green roofs are easily visible from the road and aid in your public green image.
- Solar Panels
Some buildings cannot incorporate a green roof due to their location. In this case, solar panels may suit your business better. Solar panels also greatly decrease your carbon footprint while saving your company valuable money on the electric bill.
