In recent years, there has been a spotlight on preserving the environment when it comes to building new infrastructure and improving the outdated. The “Green Building” movement promotes the preservation of the natural environment on which new infrastructure is built for the overall benefit of the environment and its occupants. This environmentally conscious movement allows us to make the buildings we need to, while also considering the future and the disastrous impact the use of hazardous material will have on future generations and the amount of available resources.
To go green or to not go green...
It is no secret that humans have not been the kindest to the environment. It would be highly beneficial for us to do everything in our power to reduce our carbon footprint and use of resources.
Going green has no real cons
Other than a slight cost increase, there is nothing bad to be said about the construction industry working to improve the environment when building by reducing pollution, efficiently using resources such as energy and water and promoting the health of buildings for their communities.
