What is a Green Building?

A green building uses sustainable building products and practices which decrease the impact on the environment. This includes reducing water, waste, gas and electrical consumption thru innovative products and techniques and using sustainable locally sourced and recycled content materials. Green building also improves indoor air quality by eliminating high emitting building materials and urea-formaldehydes. Greenlife utilizes LEED certification created by the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) to assure that everyone involved in the project shares mutual goals toward sustainability.

Why Build a Green Building?

A green building is a healthier environment to live in. Green buildings save money by reducing monthly utility costs without the occupants having to change their accustomed lifestyle. A green building reduces the impact on the environment compared to traditional building practices.

Does it cost more to build a Green Building?

A green building may have a marginal initial cost increase but in most cases, a green building will have a lower net cost.
