Being “green” is about more than recycling or remembering not to let the water run. It involves a commitment to reduce our environmental impact. With both our business and the projects we create, Abueva Builders strives to be a construction company with a conscious. We are always looking for ways to reduce our impact through efficient use of resources and mindful material choices.
At Abueva Builders we believe in going beyond what code requires. Until the last decade or so, very little in the way of insulation or air sealing was required in residential construction; and HVAC contractors have often relied on “rules of thumb” in terms of designing heating and cooling systems. But the comfort of a home is directly proportional to the uniformity of the temperature throughout the home. Lack of uniformity is so common that most homeowners just accept it! Drafts around windows and doors or one room that is always colder or hotter than all the rest is somewhat common place.
What is Universal Design? Universal Design (UD) refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce buildings, products and environments that are inherently accessible to all people regardless of age or ability.
