Sustainability

As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Brinjac Engineering has long recognized the value of green design and has helped many clients reduce operating costs through these design practices. Green building practices offer an opportunity to create environmentally sound and resource efficient buildings by using an integrated approach to design. Green buildings promote resource conservation, including energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation features; consider environmental impacts and waste minimization; create a healthy and comfortable environment; reduce operation and maintenance costs; and address issues such as historical preservation, access to public transformation, and other community infrastructure systems.

The entire life-cycle of the building and its components is considered, as well as the economic and environmental impact and performance.
