Green Building Guide

High performance green buildings are the result of an integrated design process that considers the impact of each aspect of the building as part of an interrelated whole. The IGD team considers all facets of the building during the design process, making decisions that result in a building that is good for the users, good for the owners, and good for the community and world. Many of the strategies are low-tech and low cost, using smart design instead of expensive technology. Here are the general categories that  the Integrated Green Design team will take into account.
