Build for occupant health because it will make you feel better.
As the construction industry has tightened up new homes, little attention had been paid to the substances used in manufacturing the materials that build the home. Additives in carpets, paints, adhesives, grouts, drywall compounds and plywood combine to create unhealthy levels of indoor air pollutants. We reduce the sources of indoor air pollution through careful material selection. Starting with the framing, we use sheathing products that contain no formaldehyde. No- or low-VOC paints, finishes, and adhesives reduce toxins. Good design, specialized building techniques and attention to moisture management details keep our buildings dry and free of rot and mold growth.
Many commercial buildings suffer from “Sick Building Syndrome.” And the air quality in many residences is not much better. We install ventilation systems, using energy efficient fans, programmable timers and fresh air inlets to maintain a healthy balance of fresh, circulating air. We want your home to be a healthy retreat where you can relax and breathe in comfort. Listed below are some of the methods and materials we utilize to ensure occupant health.
