Most of Blue Ribbon Builders projects are executed with clients, Architects, and other professionals in a highly collaborative team effort to produce successful projects that are on time and within budget. Our greatest success at doing so occurs when we are invited to get involved early in the process.
Blue Ribbon Builders has always practiced our value engineering process of minimizing waste and increasing the efficiency. This process is one of the most important steps in the utilization of your building resources in a sustainable manner and maximizing the energy efficiency of your home.
Other important aspects are the sourcing of sustainable materials and selecting materials that provide a healthy indoor environment. Finally alternative energy options should be evaluated to offset the environmental costs of operating your home. There are several options available to assist you in this goal from solar to wind. Some of the most efficient options are thermal conductivity options of solar thermal hot water and geothermal heat pumps.
We offer a team of consultants and tradesmen to guide you through the options and associated benefits which environmentally conscious building provides. Our knowledge of locally available options that fulfill these requirements allows the client to make the choice to minimize their impact on the environment and support the local economy.
