About Green Design & Construction

Lately, the word “green” has almost devolved into a trendy marketing term, losing a bit of its central meaning in the process.  But as it pertains to sustainable design and construction of residential homes and commercial buildings, the concept continues to evolve and become more mainstream.  There is a fast-growing trend towards LEED-certified buildings in the commercial market, and  we feel  it’s only a matter of time before green buildings will be the norm in the residential sector as well. As awareness of the cost benefits and the environmental/social impacts of green buildings grows, people will start to realize the practice makes good sense.

TDC proudly holds three of the top industry and governing green/sustainable design and construction certifications.
