At Building In Green, we are not trying to change the world in one day, but rather make small changes that will help make an impact on the environment for the immediate benefit of existing and future generations.
We specialise in shop-fitting but cater to all your building needs. It’s understood that as much as the general population would like to change the way they do things. they are sometimes limited by their budget. At Building In Green, we will help you understand that Green Building Practices don’t need to be costly. Small, simple changes can make a dramatic impact on your immediate environment and overall health, for example:
did you know that some regular indoor paints can release toxic fumes called “out-gassing” for up to six years after application contributing to various health conditions like asthma, headaches, breathing difficulties, dizziness, fatigue and blurred vision, so by choosing environmental paints with no VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) you will be making a positive impact on yourself and your family’s health.
For the environment’s health, did you know that by choosing to use bamboo rather than timber on your deck or indoor flooring, you are helping to reduce the need for extensive logging of our forests. Bamboo is rapidly renewable, replacing itself every four years. It also absorbs 35% more CO2 than a similar area of hardwood forest making it a valuable carbon sink.
These are just a couple of the simple choices that you can make when planning your next renovation, shop-fit or extensive development.
