There are only a few major building systems that can offer significant energy and environmental benefits. Naturally, the HVAC and lighting systems play a key role in energy efficiency. But, equally important are the building envelope roof and wall systems:
With experience in weatherproofing and waterproofing of building envelopes, GreenEfficient® is capable of handling the largest and smallest of projects. We only service commercial facilities in the private, government and medical markets. We are capable of providing complete waterproofing from the walls, entryways, roofing, windows and all
“Sustainability” is an overused and misunderstood term. The most basic foundation of sustainability is making sure we use our limited resources as efficiently as absolute possible. The first step in this approach is to make sure that our current assets are utilized as long as possible before replacement – quite simply, reduce cost & extend system life-cycle through Restoration, Renovation or Retrofit.
Initial energy efficiency begins with the amount of energy required to harvest, manufacture and transport new systems to the building. Then, through the service life of the system, energy efficiency is a direct function of many characteristics (solar reflectance, thermal resistance, thermal emittance, thermal mass, transpiration, convection and air flow). A system can lose efficiency by premature failure of any one of these properties.
