Eco-friendly building and design practices are planted firmly in the mainstream. Look at any segment of the building industry, and you’ll find evidence that green practices are not only desired — they’re expected.
- The Grand Hyatt Atlanta installed a harvesting system that will collect a million gallons of rainwater annually for use in the hotel’s cooling towers.
- The library in Cherry Hill, N.J. (pictured above), remodeled with custom Marvin windows that combine high-end design with superior energy efficiency.
- The construction cost of LEED-certified hospitals is only about 1.25 percent more than for a non-LEED building, according to a study by the U.S. Green Building Council. That’s astonishing — why would any responsible entity not go for the LEED version?
- Six out of 10 Americans say that green features are their top desire in their “dream home.”
Marvin offers more window options that have been rated “Most Efficient” by the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR program than any other manufacturer. When you can combine superior energy efficiency with virtually endless design options — why not go with Marvin, the industry leader in both?
