Green Building

Construction Management - A nice resource that tries to bring a common sense and helpful approach to construction management along with incorporating LEED standards and other practical applications to building construction.
Green Brush Painters - Paint is a wonderful product. The right paint adds protection and beauty to the exterior, and makes the interior a beautiful expression of your personality. Paint delivers a true reflection of you through the colors, the attention to detail and the obvious care with which it is applied. Paint is the thin veneer that brings together architecture and a building’s furnishings to create the perfect environment for you and your family. And paint, amazing paint, can also protect more than the building. It can protect you and your family by eliminating harmful chemicals, and it can protect the environment by being applied properly and stored or disposed of in a safe, secure method.
