It Pays to Be Green

Building Better, Building Green

Every year, energy efficient building practices and environmentally friendly building options continue to become more popular and more affordable. Kopp Construction is committed to continuing to educate ourselves and our clients on the most current green building practices and products.

Building green with sustainability and energy conservation in mind is consistent with our goal of building the best home possible for you. Kopp Construction incorporates green building materials and green construction technologies that provide a Comfortable, Cost Saving, Healthy, Sustainable Home.

Green Certification

The US Green Building Council added to their existing commercial certifications by implementing their Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program for Residential Buildings in 2007. This is a comprehensive and stringent certification and Kopp Construction is proud to have been among the first Portland green builders to apply for and receive this prestigious certification for a green home we custom built for one of our environmentally committed Portland area clients.

Comfortable Homes

Good energy design and high efficiency infrastructure construction work together to make a green home that is more comfortable for you and better for the environment. Some of these building features include:

  • Low E and Insulated Windows
  • Energy Efficient House Wraps
  • Radiant Heating

Cost Savings

Energy bills can be lowered and maintenance and replacement costs reduced through the use of green building materials and appliances that are energy efficient, with higher durability, such as:

  • Tankless Water Heaters
  • Radiant Heat Systems
  • Energy Star Appliances
  • Energy-Efficient Lighting
  • Photovoltaic and Solar-Thermal Panels

Healthy Homes

Indoor air quality affects how you feel everyday and can be improved by many of the items used in the construction of your green home. Indoor air pollution can be reduced through the use of:

  • Low-VOC Paints and Finishes
  • Formaldehyde-free Insulation
  • Recycled or Natural Fiber Carpets
  • Alternative Wood Choices for Flooring, Cabinets and Millwork
  • Electrostatic Air Cleaners

Resource Responsibility
Build Green

High efficiency appliances save energy and conserve our natural resources. Many green building materials can be made with high-recycled or low-impact content including:

  • Recycled glass and ceramic tiles
  • Fly ash concrete mixtures used in constructing footings, foundations, and slabs
  • Engineered wood products
  • Fiber-cement siding
  • Use of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified lumber and wood products
  • Recycle construction waste
