As one would expect, green building design in Vancouver provides the opportunity to develop an intelligent building and incorporate an energy efficient mechanical system. Energy efficiency is at the cornerstone of most green building developments, which can help to circumvent excess operational costs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, environmental spillover is greatly reduced in comparison to traditional commercial building development approaches.
Choose the Best Site Possible

When companies are considering operating a new commercial facility, it helps to consider the cost saving that creating an energy efficient structure provides. Taking energy efficiency into consideration can greatly influence the site location overall so its best to get a professional opinion before selecting a site. Orientation, landscaping, and transportation all play a role in incorporating green principles into commercial constructions. Considering these factors allow contractors to design elements into the structure that yield long-term financial and environmental benefits.
Here are 3 important factors to consider before undertaking your next building project:
Less Operational Maintenance and Energy Use

One of the primary goals of green building design in Vancouver should be to optimize the energy usage in a particular property and reduce the associated environmental impacts using energy reduction strategies. It’s ideal to consider exploring all energy efficiency options available for your next building project with BC Comfort’s Design Build team.
Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) is another area that green building design improves upon. Indoor environmental air quality plays a huge role in determining the quality and even the length of time spent in a particular building and can significantly impact employee satisfaction in working in an office.

Green buildings combat poor environmental quality by maximizing daylight, ventilation, moisture, and acoustics. Design build services take these factors into consideration as they are ultimately what constitute a healthy indoor living environment.
