Green Construction for Your Ottawa Commercial Space

Looking for Ottawa general contracting for your office space involves a lot of considerations.  More and more one of these is whether you will be building a “green” building.

So what is a green building?  Using an Ottawa general contractor for a green building requires that the contractor is experienced creating more energy-efficient office spaces. Your Ottawa general contractor should be able to find the delicate balance between building and the sustainable environment.

A good working definition of green building is “the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings use resources — energy, water, and materials — while reducing the impact on human health and the environment during the building’s life cycle, through site selection, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal.”

Argue uses Robertson steel buildings to help meet the rising demand for environmentally-friendly green buildings. Argue’s Ottawa general contracting along with Robertson materials can help you meet your sustainable building goals.

Argue uses Robertson’s materials and steel buildings largely because steel is the most recycled material in North America. Beyond just recycling, Argue’s Ottawa general contractors use our “green” know how when designing and building. Additional considerations that Argue also applies are end use, occupants’ productivity and maintenance requirements throughout the life of the building.
