Green Building = Energy Building & Science

We don't build them like they used to..

  Averill Builders

This is a phrase that we all have used many times over referring to a how "well built" homes were long ago.  Learning what we know today, that phrase could have a much different meaning.  Building Science is the term used today, referring to the actual study of a home's overall performance. The construction methods available today; make building a home that performs, much different than how they used to build them. Even by today's energy code standard and city codes, homes can be built to out preform the minimum standards required.  We pride ourselves in NOT "building homes like they used to".

Energy savings = Green Green makes sense. Lower operating costs, health, and comfort all contribute to the demand for green-built homes. Several Federal and state agencies, along with many private lenders offer special financing incentives for buyers of environmentally-friendly homes.

Green Builders - Averill BuildersThe built environment has a vast impact on the natural environment, human health, and the economy. By adopting green building strategies, we can maximize both economic and environmental performance. Green construction methods can be integrated into buildings at any stage, from design and construction, to renovation and deconstruction. However, the most significant benefits can be obtained if the design and construction team takes an integrated approach from the earliest stages of a building project. Potential benefits of green building can include:

Environmental benefits

  • Enhance and protect biodiversity and ecosystems
  • Improve air and water quality
  • Reduce waste streams
  • Conserve and restore natural resources
