Sustainable Building Is Gaining Momentum

Green building, or sustainable building, is the practice of creating and using healthy and resource-efficient models of demolition, construction, renovation, operation, and maintenance. At Trinity Contracting Corp., we understand that the buildings in which we live, work, and play protect us from nature's extremes. They also affect our health and environment in countless ways.

The Impact

The built environment has a vast impact on the natural environment. It also affects human health and the economy.

In the United States, Buildings Account for:

• 39 Percent Of Total Energy Use
• 12 Percent Of the Total Water Consumption
• 68 Percent Of Total Electricity Consumption
• 38 Percent Of the Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Going Green

By adopting green building strategies, we believe we can maximize both the environmental and economic performance. Our green construction methods can be integrated into our building process at any stage, from design to construction, to renovation and demolition. However, the largest impact is made when a green approach is taken from the earliest stages of a building project. The following are some of the benefits of going green.

Environmental Benefits:
• Enhance and Protect Biodiversity and Ecosystems
