In honor of Earth Day (April 22nd), we’re celebrating some of the sustainable buildings and finish-outs we have constructed over the years.
Sustainable building, or “green building”, increases the efficiency of buildings and the health of their occupants by reducing the use of energy, water, and wasteful materials it takes to create and maintain them.
Because buildings have such a large impact on our natural environment, green building concepts will continue to become more and more important as time goes on. As a general contractor, it’s crucial to be well versed in green building principles to properly execute the intent of these green designs.
While there are more certifications available, we have experience working within the LEED and AEGB systems.
- LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely accepted and used green building rating system globally.
- AEGB, which stands for Austin Energy Green Building, was created by the City of Austin in 1990 to help the city reach their climate protection goals.
Both programs are unique in their requirements and documentation. Sabre has the staff to help the team execute the project and meet the requirements for the system.
