)-- "When it comes to design, making it green should be as natural as making it beautiful," says Harvey Stern, President of Green Planet Building. "The use of sustainable materials, energy saving devises, and systems designed to provide comfort and reduce pollutants is no longer an option for most of our clients. This is the message we want to convey to the 20,000 or so architects, designers, builders, and consumers who are attending the Dwell on Design show at the LA Convention Center, June 24-26," says Mr. Stern
The Dwell show brings forward thinking architects, designers and builders from all over the world to unite in one place. From this show both those in the industry and the public can check out the future in design concepts for homes and other dwelling structures, plus see how design and function will make life even more comfortable and enjoyable in the years ahead.
Green Planet Building sees themselves as a major beacon in that combination of style and function. Stern explains: "In the early days it would add substantial cost to a custom home or a major remodel to think green. However, as with most things, the more you make of something, efficiencies of scale will drive down the price. We now tell our clients they can have it all…elegant, frugal, and green."
The three main elements of building green are:
1. Utilization of sustainable building materials preferably sourced locally to drive down transportation costs and fuel use.
2. Designing in energy savings to reduce the use of carbon based fuels and adding solar and other non carbon energy sources.
3. Reducing or eliminating toxins in the home through air filtration systems and the use of building materials and trim that do not contain toxic chemicals.
You will find Green Planet Building in booth # 835. They will be happy to help you plan your kitchen remodel, room addition, outdoor living space, or build a complete custom home from design to completion with green always in mind.
