)-- Spend 35%-50% Less on Energy without Increasing Construction Cost
W. Michael Linn, President and CEO of Greensleeves and Clyde Rauch, President and CEO of Touchstone CPM, announced today they have decided to work together to provide breakthrough technology for building energy efficient buildings that are cost competitive with conventional construction.
“The “Green” dilemma has been that constructing energy efficient buildings have, in the past, required higher up-front costs. The investment required usually pays back over time, but tight budgets often outweigh future savings. It is now possible to dramatically reduce future energy bills without increasing construction cost” said Linn. “This can be done with an integrated energy harvesting, storage and distribution system built as part of the building itself and implemented with strong project management. That’s why we came to Touchstone. Their history of quality on-time, on-budget construction makes them an ideal construction project manager for a building that contains a complete energy system.”
Buildings consume 40% of the energy in today’s world, but they are much less efficient than they need to be. Touchstone and Greensleeves are serious about conservation and reducing carbon footprint by reducing the cost of constructing energy efficient buildings. “We are pleased to be working with Greensleeves to help building owners not only have projects that are on-time and on-budget but to actually reduce their energy load in the future”, said Clyde Rauch of Touchstone. To do this, the U.S. has to construct buildings as a complete system and not as components or in stages.”
