Have you ever seen this year’s Eco-friendly Building Survey? Otherwise, check out the current issue of National Property Investor or Retail Traffic as each features a special supplement known as “Why sustainability endures when confronted with recession.”
I discovered the section about adopting energy retrofits especially timely as Englewood Construction lately completed our latest commercial sustainable renovation company project at Sloan Valve, a plumbing systems manufacturer in Franklin Park, Ill.
The Eco-friendly Building survey claims that 73 percent of designers have formerly retrofitted qualities, are while retrofitting, or are thinking about retrofitting qualities for greater energy-efficiency. And 88 percent of designers and 86 percent of executives consider eco-friendly design to become as vital or even more important now because it was prior to the recession.
So I must ask, if you are not thing about this majority, what’s holding you back from adopting a sustainable design build project or perhaps a eco-friendly retrofit construction project?
If it is the price, you may be surprised at the survey’s findings since most of commercial designers say it takes merely 3-four years to extract energy retrofit costs, including construction costs.
And you may begin having a small renovation company like upgrading your Heating and cooling, lighting or water controls to ensure they are more energy-efficient. Then, once you get comfortable, choose some thing impactful such as the two wind generators and solar power we installed on the top of Sloan Valve’s headquarters.
But it doesn’t matter how you choose to dip your foot in to the eco-friendly pool, make certain you align yourself having a commercial construction contractor well experienced in sustainable construction, are people from the U.S. Eco-friendly Building Council and have gained Leadership in Energy and Ecological Design (LEED) certification.

In case your commercial general contractor’s primary office is within another time zone from you and your project, the GC should focus on your clock, not their own. Like a national retail contractor, we’re accustomed to getting multiple projects in numerous timezones. With Zara, we taken care of immediately questions well in to the evening because our contacts in The country were six hrs in front of us and merely beginning a full day.
