Make sure to check out this short little interview with Kavita Gupta, Director of Business Development for Perkins + Will, an architectural firm with a solid reputation for designing cutting edge green projects. Ms. Gupta talks about some of the drivers of green buildings, many of which are listed below. Green buildings:

  • Reduce energy costs
  • Reduce water costs
  • Have better indoor air quality
  • Increase worker productivity
  • Increase worker health
  • Help attract and retain talent
  • Improve the overall bottom line

I think we’re now getting to the point where most people agree that greener buildings are better buildings. Next step: sustainable buildings.
