Reporting Texas Features Green Building

The online magazine “Reporting Texas” interviewed us for an article this month called “Austin Turns to Green Building as Energy Costs Rise”. The article focuses on a shifting paradigm in the public realm.  Just five years ago the general population might have just assumed that “Green Building” meant that you have bamboo floors or Low VOC paints, now the public is coming to design professionals asking for more energy efficient appliances, spray foam insulation, radiant barriers, reflective roof materials, properly oriented windows etc.  This is great – it shows that these “green building practices” are becoming the norm, they are becoming the minimal standards consumers expect when  looking for quality in their home design and construction.  The more educated people become the greater the traction of the sustainable movement.  It is encouraging.
