Green building is no passing trend. The major construction companies embrace it and recommend green practices for a multitude of reasons.
Sam Statz, director of technical services at Hoffman Planning, Design and Construction, Inc. in Appleton, said “In the past we did this because it was the right thing to do. People see it now as a way to save money.”
The financial rewards for customers are clear to Theresa Lehman, director of sustainable services at Miron Construction Co. Inc., in the town of Menasha.
She said it clamps down on overall spending.“Green building has taken off because people are concerned about their annual operation expenses,” Lehman said.
