While the Green Building Center - New York branch provides integrated project delivery throughout New York state, the majority of our current projects are centered around New York City, the Hudson Valley and Long Island region.
Going green in the New York City metropolitain area means facing challenges that simply don't exist elsewhere.
Largely a vertical city with limited private outdoor space and natural light, NYC residents have eagerly embraced making healthy, green changes in both their buildings and their lives. The most luxurious building developments now boast green elements and energy efficiency as key amenities and individual apartment and townhome owners are following suit by renovating with sustainable products.
But NYC is unique. With few people living in traditional, single family homes, changes must meet strict building codes. While owners in apartment buildings, multi-family residences, or townhouses can make significant changes to their property, this often must be accomplished in ways that satisfy condo or co-op boards. In addition, nearly 30% of properties in NYC have landmarked status, which prevents significant changes and modifications to buildings without special permissions.
Green Building Center professionals have the experience and the connections to navigate the difficult design, building, and renovation landscape, helping to ensure both the healthiest building and the highest return on your green investment.
