What Is Sustainable Building and Is It Right for You?

Sustainability. We’re all probably familiar with the term on some level, even if we’ve only heard it in passing from an ad or politician’s speech. You most likely have a hunch that it has something to do with the environment, and you’d be right.

To be sustainable, in the broad sense, means to leave something, usually that relates to the planet, in an equal or better state compared to the one you found it in. In an even broader sense, it can also mean operating with the environment in mind, whatever that may mean in a given context.

Many industries today are getting on the sustainability bandwagon, even the architectural design and construction project management ones, and even us at Miller Architects & Builders. Why? Aside from sustainability obviously being an ethical practice, it also serves as a draw for a variety of customer demographics. People want to feel good about whom they do business with, and they want to know that their company of choice supports similar causes as they do.

Sure, sustainability benefits us at Miller, but does hiring a sustainability focused construction management company like us actually benefit your building and your results?

When your building is green, your customers – be them shoppers, representatives from other businesses, you name it – will take note that your company is one that has made an ethical decision.
