Whenever a new commercial construction center is built, the first construction elements you hear about is how sustainable it is. Is it LEED certified? Does it have solar panels? Are they using LED light bulbs?
At our construction firm in Las Vegas, we know green commercial construction is a popular trend rising in commercial construction, and it isn’t losing any momentum.
The Rise of Green Commercial Construction
There are multiple reasons why eco-friendly commercial construction is on the rise. One reason is the influence and interest in sustainable construction elements and designs. It is a shame, as it is a waste, to see multiple dilapidated buildings torn down and then have the material sit in a landfill.
Additionally, when you think about how the natural resources were mined and the amount of hours workers put into creating them is an overall efficiency issue. Most designers respond to this issue promoting eco-friendly, flexible and reusable design.
Another reason is the societal influence. Imagine being the business leader or institutional leader who wants to be positive, significant part in the community. However, the buildings they inhabit create or waste communal resources. Would the society view them as a community benefit? Simple applications, whether using reclaimed wood or geothermal heat-pumps, benefits everyone and promotes a thoughtful business brand.
Another reason, and perhaps the most significant, are the economic reasons. Conservation, value engineering and eco-friendly design save money. In value engineering, the idea is why would you pay more for something when there is something cheaper that works and lasts just as well? Additionally, implementing sustainable designs may initially cost more, but the savings from maintenance will pay off.
