Sustainable Construction

Building with a global environmental ethic is top of mind for many clients and for NLC. Environmental responsibility starts with good design but tradecraft, ethical purchasing and minimizing waste, are also important. The core environmental design elements are envelope details. Incorporation of the right new technologies and products can enhance occupant comfort and lessen the environmental footprint. Reduce, reuse and recycle are important practices in all industries but the high volume of materials involved in construction make the 3R’s an especially important environmental policy but also a good business practice. Right sizing your project, good technical design, appropriate technology and quality construction are the key ingredients to sustainable construction.
