Our Dedication To Environmentally Responsible And Sustainable Building Principles Sets Us Apart

In the Seattle area we carry the banner as a recognized responsible builder. That means we have a thorough knowledge of low-impact building principles and a knowledge and dedication to performing the construction of the building in the right place.

As we focus on environmentally responsible building practices and materials we not only benefit the environment, but we help your health and your pocketbook. Each year that passes reveals the dangers of common building materials of the past that included ingredients that were potentially damaging to your health.

Dangerous building materials include:

● Formaldehyde
● Silica
● Lead
● Wood treatments
● Polyvinyl chloride
● Common flame retardants
● Asbestos
● Cadmium
● Many, many more

We Achieve Efficiency And Discover Overlooked Possibilities

If you could see the overall potential we bring to your building project – from assisting you with property selection down to the last walk-through of a finished home – you would look no further. We can find beautiful sites discounted by other builders. With both the technology and ability to build on difficult slopes, challenging soil types, and environmentally-sensitive locations, GIS can show you places that are so scenic and ideal, you will wonder why someone didn’t build there first.

The GIS Resposible Building Processes Include Land Preparation And Exterior Landscaping:

Our sustainability plans can extend outside the home and into the land itself. We work to incorporate the natural elements around your home, including:
– Protection of native species
– Protection of wetlands
– Protect native or rare plants

Environmentally Responsible Building Practices Reaches Every Phase Of The Building Process:

Materials that are naturally sourced are not inherently good for you. Both lead , asbestos, and radon are found in nature. Our efforts are therefore not to just source materials from nature, but rather to find and use those materials that will make your home and life a pleasant, efficient, and healthy place to live. Some of the primary ways we look to reduce the impact and save energy include:
– Energy efficient windows
– Energy Star appliances
– Environmentally sustainable materials
– Low energy lighting
– Low-VOC paint
– Water-based wood finishes
Water-efficient technologies:
– Low water use sinks
– Low-flow toilets
– Insulated hot water pipes
– Recycled water / Irrigation delivery systems
