Why GO GREEN?
Buildings account for 39% of total energy and 72% of the electricity used in the United States. They also use 5 billion gallons of water per day and generate 1.6 pounds of waste per employee per day. Globally we are exhausting natural resources at an alarming rate and nations are so overwhelmed, they are paralyzed to inaction.
Whether you are a believer in climate change or not, one cannot debate that we are depleting natural finite resources at an alarming rate and our consumerism is creating an ecological debt that we are reluctant to recognize or quantify.
Christie Development Services is a proponent of the US Green Building Council and the LEED Rating System for the design and construction of new construction and for the remodel or refurbishment of existing buildings. Let us help you "Think Before You Build" to understand the complete life cycle of your design and construction practices.
