Incorporating Sustainable Construction into your Project
Incorporating sustainable construction techniques into your project does not have to be a challenge. When working with an experienced LEED accredited green builder, such as Talbot Builders, you will learn that:
Your project does not need to take longer to build because it uses these techniques.
Your project does not necessarily need to cost more to build.
Your building can be just as technologically advanced as you would like it to be.
Your project can also be customized to meet any demands you have.
What do 'Sustainable Construction' and 'Green Building' really mean? Generally, the terms “green building” and “sustainable construction” can be used interchangeably. They are the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use energy, water, and materials, and reducing building impacts on human health and the environment over the entire life cycle of the building. Green building concepts extend beyond the walls of buildings and can include site planning, community and land use planning issues as well.The U.S. Green Building Council defines green building as “the weaving together of many energy-efficient, resource-efficient and people-friendly practices in the responsible design and construction of our buildings and living environments.”
Many associate “green” with expensive energy-saving solutions but the depth and scope of sound green building affects us all as we become a part of building a better, more sustainable future. It’s more than energy conservation: it’s a matter of future preservation.

Our approach is to demonstrate the connection between our historical standards of high quality and high performance, and to redefine how those standards are measured from the point of view of green building. Green building is about your home’s efficiency, its incredibly low cost of ownership, the beauty in design and livability that make it timeless, and its healthfulness for you and your family.
