We use independent third party building testers, to ensure the reliability of the data. These testers are certified, and use the latest non-destructive equipment.
During the design process, we are looking at the whole building and site in terms of energy use, water use, indoor air quality, site impact, and materials.
By having the contractor involved in the design process, there are no surprises or learning curve when it comes time for construction.
There a number of different organizations that provide rating systems and independent third party certification of green buildings. Find out more...

What is a Green Home?
A green home uses less energy, water and natural resources, creates less waste and is healthier for the people living inside compared to a standard home. It’s as simple as that!
It’s getting easier to go green when you build a new home. But for existing homeowners, whether your house is 5 years or 105 years old, it can be a little trickier.
There are many “exciting” ways to green a house, from a vegetated roof to solar panels to geothermal systems. Just as important are the “boring” ways, such as better insulation, properly sized efficient heating and cooling systems, and low flow water fixtures. The key is developing a plan that is unique to your home, priorities, and budget. Our experienced team of architects and contractors will work with you to incorporate the latest technology and practices in a creative way.
A green plan for your home is no good unless you can implement it. A typical plan can include carpentry, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, and landscaping work, as well as the challenges of working on your occupied home. GreenBau provides the single source responsibility you need to make the project a success.
There are many very real benefits to living in a green home, and every day, more and more Americans are discovering those benefits. Let GreenBau make your home healthier, more durable and more cost-effective.
