Green building Services provided by Fairfield County CT Custom Home Builder, Shorefront Construction
We’re proud of the community we live in, and we want to make sure it’s at least as beautiful in the future as it is now, so we practice sustainability in our construction materials, techniques, and design. We could build to existing construction codes, but we choose to exceed these minimum levels to create a home for you that makes a positive impact on the environment. The experience and knowledge about working with sustainable construction materials that our team of experts has is available for our clients as needed. Let us help you make the right choices for our environment. We are proud to be LEED certified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) – meaning that we’ve shown the council we build an energy efficient, sustainable, and safe home for you and your family “LEED Professional Credentials demonstrate current knowledge of green building technologies, best practices, and the rapidly evolving LEED Rating Systems. They show differentiation in a growing and competitive industry, and they allow for varied levels of specialization. A LEED Professional Credential provides employers, policymakers, and other stakeholders with assurances of an individual’s level of competence and is the mark of the most qualified, educated, and influential green building professionals in the marketplace.” – GCBI
We’re proud of our LEED status, and the homes we build or renovate are warmer, dryer, better lit and more comfortable overall; the perfect environment for you and your family.
But living in a LEED certified house is more than just bragging rights. It’s a great way to save money on your energy costs (LEED certified buildings are on average 25 – 30% more energy efficient). It’s the way of the future, and we’re glad to be able to offer our expertise to you so you can reap the benefits of living green.
Here are a few ways we can help your home be more energy efficient:
Install high-efficiency windows in the right locations to maintain the right temperature and light levels
Use better insulation in the walls, ceilings, and floor to reduce your money spent on heating and cooling your home, and for a quieter home in general
Employ grey-water for your landscaping instead of just flushing it down the sewer
