Sustainability – The GREEN FACTOR
Why is it so important to go green? We often think of going green as being able to actively reduce our carbon footprint and help the environment, but you can go green in a variety of different ways. Some of these might include: providing healthier environments for the occupants of your building, improving the quality of life in the vicinity, reducing operating costs, and improving air and water quality. Green buildings are designed in such a way to reduce overall impact on the environment and human health. A smarter and improved design in the construction process, can lead to greater savings and sustainability. At Done Group we understand the benefits of sustainability and are willing to be of assistance during the pre-construction process and throughout the project to help you gather a greater understanding of sustainability and its benefits.
Green building has grown in popularity in recent years, and modularization is a smart way to reduce the environmental impact that your project could have on the environment. Site waste is a major problem on all conventional build construction sites around the world. Modularization helps to solve this problem by reducing site waste by approximately 90% as well as neighborhood disruption and traffic noise. Modular building is a sustainable way to build and reduce the impact that your construction process and project can have on the environment.
