Go Green Go Steel
Marcovecchio Construction in partnership with Robertson Building Systems is dedicated to it's "Go Green Go Steel" initiative and it's environmental impact in the community now and in the future. In order to understand why steel buildings are environmentally friendly let us help explain the number of elements that make steel buildings green.
A green building has characteristics that reduce its environmental impact during its life cycle-from construction all the way through to the end of the building's useful life. These green building characteristics are measured against three criteria:
Buildings use one-third of all energy and two-thirds of all electricity generated. Marco provides customers with a variety of green building options that help mitigate energy consumption and support overall green building efforts including: environmental, economic, and, health and community. As a leader in our industry, we are committed to the continuation of developing new green building opportunities and innovations for our customers.
