Green Building Continues to Grow
In an effort to reduce their
"carbon footprint," consumers are now looking at ways to make a
building green beginning with the initial construction phases. SRI
Consulting (SRIC) recently released a report that explains how the use
of green building technology can be incorporated into construction.
The rising popularity of green buildings suggests a trend towards
more environmentally friendly materials being used in conventional
building techniques and construction methods. Decreased costs and the
growing availability of these materials are helping to promote market
competition among traditional building materials and the newer, green
SRIC's "Green Building Materials" report focuses on several areas
for growth in the green building market. These areas include; support
structures; engineered wood and lumber; wall systems; lighting;
insulation; and energy/utilities. The report also examines the
feasibility of green building technologies for today's building
standards in terms of current usage and availability.
