Greenville, South Carolina (PressExposure) August 12, 2008 -- Donald A. Gardner Architects, Inc., one of the nationâs leading residential house plan designers, announces two new environmentally conscious initiativesâa free guide to building green and house plans on recycled paper.
âWe recognized demand from consumers as well as our builder customers for environmentally sensitive business practices. We are doing our part by printing our house plans on recycled paper and providing our customers with tips to make environmentally friendly choices as they build their new homes,â said Lex Stapleton, the firmâs senior architect and portfolio manager.
Because any set of house plans can be built in an environmentally sensitive way, depending on product choice, site analysis and landscaping, the free guide to building green provides valuable information on all aspects of environmentally conscious building practices. The free guide will accompany every set of Donald A. Gardner Architects, Inc. house plans sold and will be available on the firmâs website at http://www.dongardner.com/green
The recycled engineering bond paper that the house plans will be printed on is created from 30% post consumer waste and creation of the paper requires 60% less energy to make than virgin paper.
