Sustainability is simply the capacity to endure.
An ISBU or shipping container meet and exceeds all U.S. and International building codes for use as a construction unit base. It is the epitome of sustainability and recyclable and its reputation is well known for durability and longevity.
At Green Trust sustainable building refers to building of the structure and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition. This requires close cooperation of the design team, the architects, the engineers, and the client at all project stages. The Green Trust practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort.
- Efficiently designing utilities: for minimal use, recycling energy, multiple uses of energy, and storage of unused energy in the way of gas, water, and electricity
- Protecting: occupant/human health, the environment, employee productivity and Cost vs. Pay-Off
- Reducing: pollution, waste materials, environmental degradation, impacts of buildings on the environment and human health
- Implementing: renewable resources like sunlight through passive solar, active solar, and photovoltaic equipment, and using plants and trees through green roofs, rain gardens, and reduction of rainwater run-off and Many other techniques are used. We also implement sustainable Siting and Structure Design Efficiency such as using low-impact building materials and the positioning of the structure on the land.
