So you may be asking yourself, what in the world is “Green & Sustainable Construction?” The overarching mission of Green Construction is to promote energy efficient and environmentally friendly building solutions within the residential building and remodeling industry. Earthway’s vision: “To create positive building practices for future generations.”

In its narrowest sense, the green building process minimizes the environmental impact of construction from site development to procurement and use of materials to the safe reuse, “deconstruction” or disposal of a building at the end of its useful life. In its widest sense, green building is about sustainability. Sustainability is defined as “the ability to provide for the needs of current generations without diminishing the capacity for future generations to do the same.”

So what do Green Building & Sustainable Construction Practices involve?
Green Building & Sustainable Contraction Practices emphasize the four “R’s:”

  • Reduce: Lower quantities of building materials, resources, and embodied energy resources that are used
  • Reuse: Construction materials are reused where practical and structurally sound
  • Recycle: Recycled materials are used and the home remodel or construction project is designed for recycle-ability
  • Renew: Energy inputs from natural sources and renewable building materials are emphasized

Following these practices, Earthway utilizes sound green design, construction and building methods without compromising structural durability, indoor pollutant levels, ventilation, building code requirements or future marketability!
