Green Construction Trends in 2021
September 15, 2021
Channel Lumber has a number of LEED certified products. The trend in construction is not only to create an efficient building, but to use LEED certified products in the actual building process.
The fundamentals of LEED certified building are to minimize waste, and environmental impact, and to conserve energy and recycle.
Self Mending Concrete
One of the most interesting trends is self-mending concrete. This is concrete that is saturated with bacteria that can bind the cracks in concrete.
Another source of sustainability is hydropower. Hydropower is a clean and sustainable source of power and already comprises 20% of total global electricity. These numbers are expected to soar in coming years.
It pays off to incorporate green building into your construction.
