Tried and True – The Art of Simple Solutions and Integrated Design
The latest in cutting-edge technology often creeps into the discussion when the subjects of green building design and operation arise. While systems and processes have seen remarkable progress in the past 10 years, going green doesn’t demand state-of-the-art advances or sophisticated features. In fact, some of the more successful sustainable concepts are grounded in tried-and-true practices and cost very little (if properly planned).
This year will be marked by a continued emphasis on green construction and building material alternatives. Even if new construction isn’t on the horizon for you, there are a variety of effective green alternatives that can easily be implemented into existing facilities.
