Green Building Concepts


Green Building does not just mean using an Energy Star approved color on your roof or wall panels, it is much more than that. Green Building involves everything from start to finish to meet the needs of present without compromising the ability of future generation to meet their own needs

Green Building Strategies

The main strategies to achieve a green building include:

  • Reduced Energy Consumption
  • Recycling Waste
  • Water Conservation
  • Innovation in Design
  • Less Natural Resource Use
  • Minimum Construction Waste
  • Less Environmental Impacts

Well designed green buildings will save money, increase comfort and create healthier environments for people to live and work, using improved indoor air quality, natural daylight, and thermal comfort. It often provide healthier work and living environments, which contributes to higher productivity and improved employee health and comfort.

Energy use by depleting natural resources as well as CO2 emissions is one of our most important environmental impacts. Volatile energy markets, rising energy costs and increasing environmental awareness about issues such as global warming make energy efficiency and conservation a high priority.

Metal Roofs are an excellent source for rain water retention also helping to achieve that “Green Building” status. In addition, metal roofs and metal buildings are a strong, stable way to take advantage of today’s solar initiatives. The strength of a metal roof and a metal building allows it to withstand heavy loads, they can withstand the weight of the solar laminates as well as the solar crystalline products that are used today.

Solar Energy Panels are used as a renewable energy resource to produce electricity from direct sunlight. These are photovoltaic devices made up of semiconductor silicon. With solar roof systems, the steel building will power itself, lowering monthly electric bills and saving the environment. When you use the right roof panels the solar panels are barely noticeable because of the seamless integration.

Build Green’s focus is on reducing building energy usage and increasing occupant comfort. Metal is an exciting and dynamic material. It can be formed and enhanced to create amazing, aesthetically pleasing buildings and also help save the environment. It is great green building solution.
