"Green" - It is the current buzzword in the building profession. Many owners have committed to building a green building and/or a LEED certified building for the publicity and the improved effect on the people who occupy the building. But, what are the financial paybacks for these green systems and design strategies? Do some systems make more sense than others from a financial standpoint? Is a white roof really better than a black roof in this climate?
At a recent Construction Owners Association of America (COAA) Conference, Matt Sutter reviewed several case studies and modeled situations from buildings that SōL Harris/ Day Architecture has designed to see what "green" design means in terms of the short term and long term cost implications for the building owner.
