Green building, or sustainable design, is the effort to create more efficient buildings.

Green and Sustainable buildings use less energy, water, and materials, and reduce impacts on human health and the environment.  DMG’s Sustainable building design service provides buildings that save on operating expenses, improve the owner’s bottom line profit, and provide marketing benefits.

Sustainable Design can be applied in the design of new buildings and can also be used to improve existing buildings.
