The Tower House at East Beach

 
 
 

Green building (also know as green construction or sustainable building) refers to a structure and using process that is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition. This practice expands and compliments the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort.


Although new technologies are constantly being developed to complement current practices in creating greener structures, the common objective is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by not only efficiently using energy, water and other resources but also by protecting occupant health as well as reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation.

 

The Tower House at East Beach uses many Green Building concepts including SIPS (Structural Insulated Panel System), up to R-38 insulation ratings, four zones of GeoThermal Heating and Cooling, as well as radiant heating in the floors.
