Green Building

It’s hard to pick up a magazine or turn on the television today without seeing some reference to “green”. The environmental and global economic impacts of human behavior are rapidly becoming more of a concern to consumers and businesses alike.

But what does “green” mean in the world of homebuilding and homeownership?

How can you begin to have an impact on your practices, whether in your own home, or in the homes that you build?

These are the questions that Building Knowledge Inc. (BKI) helps our clients to answer through our products and services.

To BKI, green building is responsible building – building that takes “building better homes” one step further – to focus not only on the home itself, but on the impact of the entire building process on the environment and economy.

Our goal is to take the mystery out of “green” and allow our clients to have an impact on the homes that they build and live in. For more information on how we can help you “green your homes” read about our products and services, or contact us.
