Climate Change: Whose Problem Is It?

Climate Change:  Whose Problem Is It?

This is an excellent article from GBRI (Green Building Research Institute) giving an overview of global warming concepts, history, and science.  Check-out the article and the informative links.

Excerpt

“Today, climate change is a well-known fact, but for years it was a hotly debated topic. While there are still some climate deniers, the majority of people have finally accepted the harsh truth that we’re facing. There’s no longer room for debate – we’ve had the 10 warmest years ever recorded since 2005, and hundreds of species are at risk if we continue on this path. We’re at risk to lose entire cities, as increased temperatures cause sea levels to rise.

There have been plenty of warning signs over the years. We can look back at the past century and see exactly what was happening. So, what did the earth look like before climate change? What will it look like in the future? This article will act as a climate time machine, taking you back to look at the changing climate over the years. Then, we’ll consider what these changes mean for us in the present day, what the future looks like, and, perhaps most importantly – whose problem is it, really?”

What can we do to help?  We continue to integrate resilience and energy efficiency goals into our design + build process whether or not our clients are requesting it (many clients are, some are not).  We are being proactive and making sure our clients have the latest information to informatively make their final choices and decisions.

Contact us for a deeper dive into this very important topic and our process!

Nestled in the Trees

We are so happy how Grandview is turning-out (nestled in the trees).

The pre-existing tree canopy and lakeside location is such an idyllic setting.

So much work goes into dreaming and creating a work of architecture.  Working with our clients to come-up with the design concept, then the key details may only get you 25% there.

You have to have really great communication between Owner, Architect, and Construction Team from beginning-to-end to get you to the finish-line.  We are almost to a-hundred!
