Many of the resources we rely on are becoming increasingly scarce. Ecosystems are struggling, landfills are nearing capacity, and our quality of life is at risk. The problems can appear massive, while our attempts to make a difference can seem minuscule. But every positive step, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction.
Green construction is the philosophy and practice of using products and methods that promote environmental care and optimal living, through a commitment to natural resource conservation, energy efficiency, and better indoor air quality.
Or to put it another way, green construction is about stewardship, common sense, environmental responsibility, economic value, and creating a healthy and sustainable world for today and tomorrow. Above and Beyond Construction looks for every opportunity, large or small, to apply green practices to our projects.
