Green building is the use of designs, products, systems, and materials to make energy efficient homes and reduce carbon footprints in Tampa Bay. The carbon footprint is the CO2 emitted by the energy burned to heat and cool a structure over its lifetime, the CO2 emitted by energy burned to generate power for the home and the CO2 emitted by energy used to manufacture the building components, products, and materials.
Remodelers are problem solvers; you come to them with your wants, needs, and concerns, and we will rise up to the challenge to produce designs that solve these problems and meet your needs. As your local remodelers, Greaves Construction in Tampa Bay has been using eco-friendly techniques for years. We rely on deconstruction (not demolition) of existing areas, reuse of existing materials for reconstruction, and we donate all usable building materials fixtures, cabinets, recycle debris after a job is finished.
Green building science studies the management of many components to make a structure’s systems work. The key elements are the management of heat, air, and moisture. Each of these affects energy efficient homes differently and together, reduce the homeowner’s footprint.
