BUILDING GREEN

As Americans, we have all become accustomed to the idea of sustaining and improving the world we live in.  Cobra strongly believes that one major consideration on any commercial building project should be how it affects our natural environment.  Most commercial and industrial construction today is much healthier than it was just a few years ago.  It is more important than ever that we all consider priorities like increased energy efficiency, recyclable construction materials, and implementing construction methods that have a lesser impact on our surroundings.

One of the largest driving factors in the “green” building movement is the Green Building Council and their LEED (Leadership in Environmental Engineering and Design) program.  The LEED program sets the standard for modern environmental design.

In most states there are incentives available for making your building envelope more energy efficient.  Cobra can help you gain access to the available rebates and tax incentives.  If you are interested in exploring “green” alternatives for your building, please give us a call.  We can take care of your garden roofs, natural daylighting, and building skins to meet tomorrow’s standard for commercial construction.
