Green building, also known as sustainable, environmental, or energy-efficient building, encompasses many facets of design, construction, and materials. Many practices that were considered "green" only a decade ago are now part of our building codes for new construction, additions, and even retrofits.
Spectrum follows these principles and practices on every project:
While LEED, HERS, and other ratings are achievable, we recognize that they come with a price tag. Our practices have been designed to make an impact, as well as expand and complement the classical building concerns for economy, utility, durability and comfort. When you build correctly and with products that are known to last, then future maintenance and energy use will be significantly reduced. It is our opinion that the "greenest' products and homes are the ones that don't have to be replaced.
