Green Construction : LUSENET : SI Revolutionaries Group 4 : One Thread

What about exploring the application of more green techniques in our work? Is it possible that we could implement some solar technologies to power some of our equipment? Are alternative fuels a possibility? Can we explore use of solar heating for some of our plumbing work?

Even if we can only implement a small portion of what's already out there (as opposed to developing new technologies) it might be an attractive selling point for some customers.

I like the idea. Green techniques could include not only energy saving design, but also waste eliminating construction methods. Engineering needs to bone up on life cycle costing, construction needs to bone up on alternative system costs and we can start to hit this a lot harder. This concept is something that would have to be fed from the bottom up more than likely.
