Why Build Green
The Business Case for Green Building
Better building equal better lives
We believe green buildings are the foundation of something bigger: helping people and the commuities and cities they reside in – safely, healthily and sustainably thrive. The heart of our green building community’s effprts must go well beyond construction and efficiency, and the materials that make up our buildings. We must dig deeper and focus on what matters within those buildings: human beings.
Every single human being on the planet should have safe and healthy places to live, work, learn and play. Leading long and healthy lives is not a privilege – it’s a right for everyone. Shouldn’t the places where we spend 90% of our time support out health and wellbeing? Improved health and productivity benefits are playing a larger role than ever before in driving companies to invest in green building.
Your Energy Efficient Home
Reduced Operating Cost & Savings
Documenting annual energy savings is fundamental to building green.
It is estimated that energy savings from code-compliant buildings range from 25% – 30% in U.S. LEED certified buildings to 35% – 50% in New Zealand green buildings.
When it comes to maintenance, there can be a significant decrease in maintenance requirements and replacements if sustainable building systems are used.
Spartan will deliver these via the most productive building design and commissioning technology.
We deliver leadership committed to green building management practices, effective customer & builder communication of customer preferences and ultimate LEED Certification successes.
The Use of Green Materials to Achieve LEED Certification
It promotes the idea of “green building,” a practice of designing, constructing, and operating buildings using fewer resources.
It aims to minimize waste and environmental impact to achieve a safer environment and building productivity.
Nowadays, construction materials and equipment are already LEED-certified, such as LEED access doors and panels and other building parts.
In 2021, we will see more of these green building materials that help achieve LEED certification:
Wood | Bamboo | Insulated concrete forms | slate/stone roofing | Steel | Composites | Natural fiber | Polyurethane | Earthbags | Fiberglass | Stone | Polystyrene | Non-VOC paints | Cellulose | Fiber cement
