At Valli Construction we are committed to green building and preserving the earth's limited natural resources. According to U.S. Government data, buildings account for 60% of the raw materials used in the U.S. and 40% of non-industrial solid waste, 65% of electricity consumption, and 12% of potable water consumption. Construction will always consume materials, but through sustainable practices, we can select materials by looking at the whole life-cycle. Our team of accredited LEED professionals can offer insights on how to maximize efficiency and minimize waste on our client's projects. Green building can be incorporated in all phases of construction, including pre-construction, construction, renovation, and deconstruction phases. Suggestions from our staff can range from site selection, energy conservation, water-saving practices, and material selections. These sustainable practices benefit our clients a number of ways:
- Lower long-term operating costs
- Increased asset value
- Possibly qualify for money-saving government incentives
- A healthier environment for the occupants in the building
- Optimized life cycle economic performance
- Conserve and restore natural resources
Green Building is more than construction, it is also about education. For that reason, Valli Construction continues to be up to date on all the latest innovations, so they can pass on valuable information to our clients.
