Quinn Company is proud to have designed and constructed a residence in Fort Jeudy using the best Green Building practises for Grenada. Green building, or sustainable design, is the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use energy, water, and materials, and reducing building impacts on human health and the environment.
The home will include solar power and solar hot water which will help with energy efficiency and water and wastewater recycling. The tiff excavated from the site for foundations was used in making compressed earth blocks with a mechanical press which were used to create some of the exterior walls. Other walls include an energy efficient insulated wall system using light gauge steel with high recycled content. The pex water piping system will be included to control and prevent water loss.
The growth and development of our communities have a large impact on our natural environment. The manufacturing, design, construction, and operation of the buildings in which we live and work are responsible for the consumption of many of our natural resources.
