Green Building Philosophy, Experience & Leadership.
Green Building is a commitment to lasting quality of both design and construction. It is a whole systems approach to building that includes:
We can all be participants in promoting a healthy and sustainable environment for ourselves and future generations. The challenges we face as a global community can be overcome when we, as individuals, businesses and governments, accept responsibility. As a business, Podesta Construction has created a culture that recognizes its role and does its best to promote Green Building.
Podesta Construction has been involved in Green Building since the very beginning of this movement in the Bay Area. Jerry Podesta, VP was one of the first in the country to receive his Green Building Certification. Many of our sustainability-oriented clients have encouraged us to take the green approach to building, giving Podesta years of successful experience with innovative sustainable building techniques and materials.
The first step in this process is thoughtful, green design. Through the design process you can address your goals and objectives so that all elements of green building are properly addressed as part of the finished product. The time invested in this process will prevent wasted resources and enhance your lives and your participation in promoting a healthy future for our planet.
We can assist our clients with services such as energy audits and Build It Greens’ Green Point Rated Program, which allows builders and homeowners to document and brand their products with a recognizable, trustworthy seal of approval, both of which can raise the valuation of your home.
