Going Green Data and Facts For Commercial Construction Companies
With an increasing push on protecting and preserving the environment commercial construction builders are adopting new policies and procedures to reduce the amount of waste resulting from their projects. We know this as “going green” and it includes everything from using less electricity in their portable mobile offices to using solar energy to heat water in office buildings. Studies have shown that using recycled materials for emissions can reduce these emissions by as much as 90%. Going green is no longer just a trendy discussion and the green building expenditure in the US is set to double in 2015 to surpass $163 billion, and considering that approximately 20% of building materials end up being discarded as waste we can see why.
