At Celebration Green Design & Build we are proud to have been part of the emphasis on energy efficiency from its earliest phases when the Energy Star program began in the 1990’s. Since then, we have been major advocates and practitioners of Green Building.
Our company is not only passionate, but as a team, we have extensive “boots on the dirt” knowledge and experience utilizing many types of energy-efficient design strategies and construction practices while continuing our education and certification to keep abreast of the latest technologies and products as they become available.
Principles that Guide Us
We believe that homes and buildings….
- have a usual lifespan of from 75 to 100 years, and that we should build them to be useful, durable, valuable, healthy and comfortable for that period of time.
- should be energy efficient, not only to realize savings on heating/cooling bills today, but also to provide a very real hedge against unknown, potentially significant inflation of energy and utility costs in the future.
- should be ecologically responsible — and tread lightly on this earth.
- should prioritize “core elements” that cannot be done later, in order to “lock in” superior quality, comfort, and energy savings.
- Advanced framing/optimized wall construction
- Airtight building envelope
- Highly insulated with super-efficient materials
- Mechanical “fresh air” ventilation
- High performance windows and doors
- Interior finishes can be updated and upgraded with relative ease as time and budget allows. However, once the “core elements” of a home are put into place, they will remain that way for a very long time.
Our Approach to Energy-Efficient Building
Whether you are at the beginning phases of planning your dream home, have begun working with an architect, or perhaps, you already have your own home plans, we have the experience and knowledge to help you navigate through the decision-making process to achieve the best energy-responsible design and building solutions.
