Green Building Program

Green Building Program design, construction, and operation can have a significant positive effect on energy, resource efficiency, waste, pollution generation, and the health and productivity of a building's occupants over the life of the building. The Green Building Program will create a more healthy work and living environment increasing the productivity of workers, residents, and visitors to the City by improving indoor air quality and lighting. This program will also help promote the environmental sustainability of natural resources and improvement of the interior environment by efficiently redirecting the use of recyclable materials away from landfills, by reducing the energy consumption needs of structures by making use of efficient construction methods.
