In the context of construction, green is much more than a color. Green building begins with the suitability of the site and assuring that the structure lends itself to the land. Minimizing site disturbance and managing erosion and sediment control during construction is just the beginning. Waste management and use of renewable resources for construction minimizes energy use and impact on our natural resources. Green building methods include efficient foundations, building envelope, indoor environmental quality, water management and sensible exterior hard and soft-scapes. The good news is that all this does not have to come at a cost premium.
