The Future is Green. Green Construction, That Is!
As we mentioned before, green commercial construction is definitely on the rise. With companies focusing more on the environment and saving money, companies find green construction a perfect and sensible solution.
Using repurposed materials and utilizing heat pumps for ventilation can cut costs and save money in the long run.
There is also a growing expectation the from society for business to do their part for the environment. Having a Platinum LEED rated building can impress clients and positively promotes a company’s brand.
Remodeling Old Buildings
The economic recession’s effects can be seen even in the general contracting business. While companies do build their own custom commercial facilities, many companies now look for prebuilt, abandoned commercial facilities to repurpose.
This makes sense. With the economy still recovering and money being tight, repurposing old buildings saves money on materials and time. Companies can now focus more creating an interior that better represents their company to their clients.
It’s also a service to the community to repurpose abandoned or historically old buildings. It impacts the community and can potentially provide a tax credit.
