Architects, builders, and homeowners taking on construction projects, whether new-build or renovations, should check out the University of Colorado Real Estate Center’s Sustainable Building Best Practices for the Rocky Mountain West. Here you can find out about sustainable practices like solar, renewable energy, geothermal energy, adaptive reuse (“the greenest building is the one already built”), mechanical/electrical/plumbing/HVAC, building orientation, stormwater, structural materials, fixtures and finishes, and much more, all specifically written for structures in Colorado and the West. Make your next project a model of efficiency and sustainability with these best practices.
