Effective green design requires a solid understanding of many different areas of green building principles and techniques; green building products and finishes, mechanical and plumbing systems, physics that act on structures and thermal boundaries. It demands a high level of knowledge and competency in the areas of home energy flows and energy efficiency in their broadest senses, as well as specific knowledge of the hundreds of ways you can make a better building.
DESIGNING FOR GREEN BUILDING CERTIFICATIONS:
LEED, PASSIVE HOUSE, ZERO ENERGY READY, LIVING BUILDING CHALLENGE…AND BEYOND!
At Meadowlark, we know the challenges and opportunities of meeting third-party requirements for green building certifications such as Energy Star, LEED, Zero Energy Ready, Living Building Challenge, and Passive House. It means we know how to conduct a comprehensive technical analysis of your home and site, how to choose building materials and products that are healthy for you and for the environment, and how to build homes that really perform.
GREEN DESIGN THAT DELIVERS BENEFITS
Our designed green homes can use significantly less energy and water, generate less waste, and are healthier, more comfortable and more durable than conventional homes. We always say: You’ll never live in a better home – unless we build you another one!
