Sustainable buildings are highly energy efficient, utilize natural resources like materials, result in good indoor air quality, and conserve water. Ayars & Ayars, Inc. has a reputation for minimal environmental impact while delivering economical on-time, on-budget results that meet customer specifications without cutting corners. A couple of great examples are the Homestead National Museum and our home office 48ROCK.
The sustainable building sector is outpacing overall construction growth in the U.S. and will account for more than 2.3 million American jobs this year, according to a new U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) study. The study also found that sustainable construction’s growth rate is rapidly outpacing that of conventional construction. By 2018, sustainable construction will account for more than 3.3 million U.S. jobs–more than one-third of the entire U.S. construction sector.
Demand for sustainable building design will only continue to grow as individuals, businesses and institutions continue to prioritize sustainable approaches to the design, construction, and operations of our built environment.
Ayars & Ayars Inc. is built a conventional steel framed office building that was designed to exceed LEED silver certification. This building is located in Sabetha Kansas and is approximately 23,000 square feet spread over two stories. The design incorporates cutting edge power management and natural light distribution into an occupant friendly floor plan. This project is an extraordinary example of a Design-Build partnership with a commitment to environmentally responsible building design and construction.
