More people building in Maui are choosing to go with environmentally friendly designs and building materials. This process is nicknamed “going green,” since it’s intended to use fewer resources and has a less environmental impact. Pro Draft is a leading drafting house here in Maui and is LEED certified for a reason. A drafting house works like a hub in the building industry. Working closely with all aspects of the construction process including Architects, Engineers, Owners, Contractors and Federal, State and County agencies, we help all the parts come together on a building project.
At Pro Draft we recognize that many people value going green and being more environmentally friendly. Well so does Pro Draft. We care about our beautiful state of Hawaii and our Maui island.
Homeowners and business owners who want to reduce their carbon footprint want to know that their project won’t negatively impact the environment. So how do they know that their new construction or remodeling project is “green? “Fortunately, there is a standard for green building and those who understand the principles.
LEED Certification Means We Care
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating Systems™. It is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings.
Architects, contractors, and other building professionals who are interested in offering green building and design can study and receive LEED Certification. These are professional credentials for those who want to gain a complete understanding of green building practices. Because LEED is constantly evolving, those who complete the initial certification must take 15 hours of continuing education and recertify every two years.
Buildings can also become LEED certified, based on criteria set out by the US Green Building Council (USGBC.) A building that is LEED-certified utilizes sustainable design along with:
• Reducing carbon emissions
• Reducing water use and waste
• Reducing other forms of waste
• Prioritizes the use of safer and more sustainable materials
• Reduces occupants’ exposure to toxic chemicals
• Is more efficient and cost-effective over the life of the building
These standards can apply to both new construction and existing construction.
We Live Here Too
Unlike some building-related companies in Maui real estate and construction, we’re based here in Paia. We like to think we have a vested interest in how things are built on Maui.
We believe that by being LEED Certified, you know we are serious about environmentally friendly building practices, designs, and building materials. Understanding Maui’s need for increasingly eco-conscious construction practices helps us stay abreast of the latest green building practices.
