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 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
