At every green building successfully built by the team of architects, designers, contractors and painting companies promoting the Green Building Movement, the cost of construction is driven further and further down. The cost of designing new and green features tapered off gradually as skills, experience and materials improved. In fact, recent trends show that green buildings are actually earning significant financial benefits compared to conventional buildings.
Today, construction and maintenance of green buildings bring cost benefits such as the following:
1. Lower energy expenses
The use of natural lighting and installing features for better heat circulation decreases electricity and gas consumption. Utilizing alternative and renewable power sources also reduces the facility’s energy expenses.
2. Decreased maintenance costs
The setup of sustainable systems in the green building ensures that the building structure lasts longer. These systems may include high-resistant protective coating systems and thermal systems that improve air circulation and ventilation in the facility.
3. Less health-related costs
A green building has fewer toxic emissions and lower pollution levels than standard buildings. This increases the environmental quality in and outside the facility. The cleaner air leads to healthier building occupants who are less likely to contract pollution-related illnesses.
4. Better Productivity
Green building employees and occupants spend their time in healthier and more comfortable environs, which boost productivity.
