There are many reasons to build green and entire books are dedicated to it. This blog will focus on just one example – reducing construction waste. One example jumps out from a nationwide builder, Belcher Homes. They have implemented the NGBS. After meeting the minimum requirements – they took it further and found they could reduce construction waste by almost 70%! This was about 2 dumpster loads of waste. At $350 per dumpster – $700 per house. Any builder would love to save $700 per house? The reduced waste is a good way to promote and your customers will appreciate it. You can also develop your image as areputable company!
It is true though that building green takes some learning and will probably cost more but the costs are almost always lower than what most builders percieve them to be. Building green is the RIGHT way to build and good builders will soon recognize it and move their companies in that direction.
