Green Construction & LEED Green Building Services

CT Home Builders is proud to offer LEED Green Building Services to our clients. LEED-accredited construction not only saves money but reduces gas emissions and promotes a healthier environment for everyone.

Green buildings are sited, designed, constructed, and operated to enhance the well-being of their occupants and support a healthy community and natural environment.

In practical terms, green building is a whole-systems-approach to building that includes:

  • Designing For Livable Communities
  • Using Sun And Site To The Building’s Advantage For Natural Heating, Cooling, And Daylighting
  • Landscaping With Native, Drought-resistant Plants And Water-efficient Practices
  • Building Quality, Durable Structures
  • Reducing And Recycling Construction And Demolition Waste
  • Insulating Well And Ventilating Appropriately
  • Incorporating Durable, Salvaged, Recycled, And Sustainably Harvested Materials
  • Using Healthy Products And Building Practices
  • Occupied Interior Construction
  • Using Energy-efficient And Water-saving Appliances, Fixtures And Technologies

When implemented holistically, these strategies serve to preserve our environment for future generations by conserving natural resources and protecting air and water quality. They provide benefits for us today by increasing comfort and well-being and helping to maintain healthy air quality. Finally, green building strategies are good for everyone’s pocketbook by reducing maintenance and replacement requirements, reducing utility bills and lowering the cost of home ownership, and increasing property and resale values.
