Ecodesign is an approach to design of a product with special consideration for the environmental impacts of the product during its whole lifecycle. In a life cycle assessment the life cycle of a product is usually divided into procurement, manufacture, use and disposal. Ecodesign is a growing responsibility and understanding of our ecological footprint on the planet. Green awareness, over population, industrialization and an increased environmental population have led to the questioning of consumer values. It is imperative to search for new building solutions that are environmentally friendly and lead to a reduction in the consumption of materials and energy.
Why Eco Design Homes?
We've been studying and using these techniques for over 30 years. We keep up on all the new innovations and products that pop up every day. We know what works and what doesn't, what's essential and what's optional, what's cost-effective and what's not.
We believe in this. "Green" building with real substance behind it is not only of immediate benefit to the homeowner, it will be essential to our future and our children's future. We were green before it was cool – and we always will be.
THE ECO DESIGN PROCESS
The home has to be what you want Your style, your look, your features, your feel.
we analyze your site, and help you take full advantage of views, land utilization, passive solar applications, and wind orientation.
Then we "green" the house itself. This involves every component of the home, from the foundation to the roof. With the techniques and products we employe, your home will dramatically lower its utility bills, significantly reduce its environmental impact, and sharply reduce its long-term maintenance costs.
We will take you through all of the options, and help you select those which fit the design, the site, your needs, and your budget.
