Green Construction Standards Continue to 'Build' Momentum


Green. Lately, the word seems to denote more than just a color. In the last few months alone, the New York Times ran an article about green weddings and another about

dirt floors; the Wall Street Journal’s Marketplace section ran a front-page article entitled “While Housing Withers, ‘Green’ Materials Bloom,” and a recent Pacific Gas & Electric slogan asked, “What does green mean to you?” More and more local governments are requiring new buildings, both public and private, to meet certain energy-related building standards. Therefore, it is not surprising

that developers are increasingly looking to include “green building” practices in their projects.
