Building Green with Building Dimensions
We at Building Dimensions are committed to applying the same amount of care and consideration we use in our personal lives to every professional project, so the decision to “Build Green” was easy to make. The green building techniques hold conventional construction techniques to a higher standard. Green building means improving the way that homes and homebuilding sites use energy, water, and materials to reduce impacts on human health and the environment. Building green home means making environmentally- preferable and sustainable decisions throughout the building process.
What should homebuyers look for first in a green home? Energy efficiency is the place to start. The energy used in homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants, which contributes to smog, acid rain, and risks of global climate change. So, the less energy used, the less air pollution generated. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognizes Building Dimensions, Inc. as an Energy Star Partner committed to building 100% of our homes to be Energy Star Certified.
Building Dimensions is also recognized by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) as a Certified Green Professional™ (CGP). This designation recognizes builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who incorporate green and sustainable building principles into homes— without driving up the cost of construction. Experience has taught us that we can build beautiful homes that are both environmentally and cost efficient.

- Choosing products and practices for greater energy efficiency
- Indoor and outdoor water conservation practices
- Preserving indoor environmental quality
- Identifying and choosing sustainable building products
