Vig Construction Company that is focused on the best practices in sustainable, commercial construction. Our mission is to develop and implement simple, relevant, and practical sustainable building strategies for new construction and existing building projects. Our "Best Practices" reduce carbon emissions while improving energy efficiency, water efficiency, and the workplace environment. We help clients realize the environmental and economical benefits of practical green building solutions, prescribed for their particular needs. What We Do Through benchmarking and careful evaluation the Project Green Team audits a new construction project or an existing building operation. At the conclusion of our audit we propose "Best Practices" that will improve the building envelope, systems, and operations. These best practices are derived from benchmark standards (LEED, Energy Star, ISO 14000) and emerging technologies.

Project Green, Sustainable Energy, Construction Management by J.S. Vig Construction

Appliances & Equipment

/best-practices/appliances

Appliances and equipment use a considerable amount of energy. Computers alone can often consumer 25% of a commercial building's electricity. Replacing older equipment with Energy Star® equipment can save energy and operating costs.

Storm Water Management

/best-practices/storm-water

Non-permeable surfaces (roads, sidewalks, roofs) create demanding situations for storm water systems. Instead of rainfall filtering naturally through the soil, non-permeable surfaces direct rainfall into storm drains, which discharge large volumes of unfiltered, polluted water into watersheds after rain events.

Daylight Views / Efficient Lighting

/best-practices/daylight-views

Traditional lighting methods limit the amount of daylight and can produce the following burdens: Increased energy (heat gain from windows) and lighting costs Decreased worker productivity and satisfaction Increased carbon emissions

Energy Efficiency

/best-practices/energy-efficiency

Buildings consume almost 48% of all energy in the United States. Implementing energy efficiency equipment and practices within buildings produces a 5% or 10% savings, which could drastically alter overall energy use.

Building Envelope

/best-practices/building-envelope

The envelope or shell of a building plays an integral role in its overall energy use. Primarily, the type of insulation selected and window fenestrations help protect the building from solar gain, heating/cooling loss, and allow for proper day lighting. The following consideration can be made.

Furniture & Finishes

/best-practices/furniture

Focusing attention on the finishes and furnishings that are used in buildings is important

Landscaping

/best-practices/landscaping

Traditional turf grass and landscape applications require irrigation and lawn mowing, resulting in: Unnecessary irrigation costs Routine maintenance and operating costs Increase storm water runoff Reduced habitat for wildlife

Paving

/best-practices/paving

Paving systems play an integral role in the sustainability of a site for two main reasons: Storm Water Runoff and Heat Island Effect.

Water Efficient Plumbing

/best-practices/plumbing

Plumbing fixtures in buildings consume a considerable amount of freshwater for necessary activities such as hand washing and toilet flushing. Advances in plumbing technology now allow for minimized fresh water use.

Renewable Energy

/best-practices/renewable-energy

Developed areas consume a tremendous amount of U.S. energy-72% when including the commercial, residential, and industrial sectors (2004 DOE data). Implementing efficient and renewable strategies can significantly lower energy bills for building owners, while decreasing the demand on traditional coal and natural gas sources.

Resources

/best-practices/resources

Roofing

/best-practices/roofing

The type of roofing that is selected for a building plays an important role in its energy performance. Two main areas are affected: Energy efficiency and Storm water management.

Site Selection

/best-practices/site-selection

The built environment places tremendous strain on environmental and municipal systems, in addition to generating higher than needed operating costs for building owners. Taking the following items into consideration when selecting a site can help create a more efficient and cost-effective solution.

Structure

/best-practices/structure

The structure of a building places high demands on natural resource extraction. Different structural types will determine the outcome of the following variables: Cost Flexibility of the type of building Life-cycle Amount of recycled content

Thermal Comfort & Air Quality

/best-practices/thermal-comfort

Supplying workplace occupants with the proper amount of fresh air and at the desired temperature can directly impact workplace satisfaction and productivity. Older HVAC systems simply supply a constant rate of fresh air throughout the day. However, newer systems have the ability to supply fresh air levels based on room occupancy, saving energy and operating costs.
