At Federalist Builders LLC, being environmentally conscious goes beyond just saying we are green and using energy star rated products.
Being energy conscious is a practice that we think about at every turn. We have gone paperless in the office whenever possible to reduce waste. We have minimized the miles driven by strategizing the number of trips for materials and biking to meetings whenever possible. When we are doing demolition we are always looking to see what can be recycled, reused, or donated to Community Forklift to be used on another project. When we are going through product selection, we think beyond the energy star stamp to think about the full life cycle of the product; how is it produced, what is its overall carbon footprint, and how much of it can be recycled at the end of its useful life.
All of these are balanced against the desires of client to design and build an efficient home that is loved for generations.
