The construction industry is changing in what consumers are looking for; the green building movement is gaining momentum as people are exploring ways to use eco-friendly materials and alternatives to new builds.

Many urban areas are using innovative ways to create homes and buildings suitable for new businesses by using already existing structures, giving clients architectural features and unique spaces within the restrictions and boundaries of a city.  Grants available for green, eco-friendly construction are helping to make this possible and are giving the construction industry the boost it needs.

Lumber still leads the way in building materials. According to a U.S. Forest Service study, research has shown that lumber yields less greenhouse gases into the environment than other building materials.

One of the best eco-friendly and green building materials for construction is still wood. Contact us at Schutte Lumber to find the wood you need for your next construction project.
