Trifecta Construction Solutions
The construction industry – not unlike many others – is most often driven by the bottom line. But, when it comes to building green, many are under the impression that “it’s too expensive” or “that it’s too complicated.”
Trifecta Construction Solutions, under the leadership of Dr. Jennifer Languell, has set a lofty goal to facilitate the implementation of environmentally responsible practices that result in valuable resource conservation. The plan is working and the industry is taking notice.
When creating green developments/communities – which can include wildlife corridors and restoring native wildlife habitat – consumers see the environmental benefits for themselves. And while green building is growing in popularity, some builders willing to “go green” don’t have the expertise to move forward. Trifecta Construction Solutions and Dr. Languell are helping to fill that void.
What Can You Do?
- Build up – not out – with a focus on traditional walkable neighborhoods and mixed-use housing and commercial development and town centers.
- Live downtown or closer to city centers.
- Provide incentives for green building with expedited permitting, higher densities and true growth planning.
- Consult with your local Florida Green Building Coalition and U.S. Green Building Council members.
