Green Trends in Construction beyond LEED Certification

  What does it mean to be a sustainable builder? A grass hut in the desert? Are there grass huts in the desert? Being a sustainable builder means building structures with the future and low-energy use in mind and implementing the green trends in construction. Using products and practices that will waste less and have fewer harmful byproducts is another large part of being sustainable in AEC.

Sustainably designed buildings and environments are put through a thoughtful process required to build green such as LEED certification requirements. The projects details are evaluated and optimized down to the smallest and most subtle detail. Sustainability in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) is becoming increasingly important as the earth continues to support growing human populations and larger industry.
