10 megatrends shaping the future of green building

We’re excited to share this very well-written article of where sustainability  trends are headed in our industry.  Our anecdotal experience “from the trenches” support that green building continues to evolve, especially in the private sector which Kiesland serves as our primary focus.

Whereas LEED certification was all the rage 5+ years ago it seems that rating scale recognition have taken a backseat to overall operating efficiency and health/well- being of building occupants.  Overall client AWARENESs and interest in green building technologies has increased dramatically.  Available technologies and applications to building operations are advancing rapidly as the cost of such improvements declines.  All of our new project design/build projects begin with an extensive review of applicable technologies and cost feasibility assessment for that particular project.

As a result of this awareness  we’re seeing tremendous interest in energy retrofits for existing buildings.  Kiesland’s BuildSmarter Plus group is structured to cater to those customers who seek greater efficiency for existing properties.  We offer a holistic approach that looks at the building as whole rather than individual.  Our focus is on what makes financial sense for a given project; action plans look carefully at ROI and available incentives.

Whether it’s for new or existing projects, we’re excited to see the global interest in sustainability increasing.

Thinking Smarter about “Green”

You’ve heard the terms;
“LEED-Certified” –  “Carbon-Neutral Design” –  “Sustainable Design / Design for Sustainability (DfS) and Design for Environment (DfE)” to list just a few.
We’re believers. We’re committed to sustainable building as well.
While we’re General Contractors and Developers, we’re also business people.
So we prefer to include more terms in our vocabulary. Terms like “Daylighting”, “Energy Efficient” and “Green Building / Sustainable Building Design”.
We think that sometimes small steps lead to big improvements and yes, return on investment. Our goal is to help businesses improve the future of the planet while ensuring the future of their business.
If that makes sense to you, we think we should talk Smarter Building.
