Our goal for Sustainability
What’s in a name? A belief, a goal, a way of viewing the world? For Sustainable Design Build, the answer is a resounding yes! Sustainability is a core belief and major focus for Sustainable Design Build so much that it was incorporated into the company’s name. Sustainability doesn’t just refer to green building materials and products, it’s also a commitment. Sustainable Design Build’s General Contractor, Zach McKendry, is a certified Colorado Green Building Professional. He, along with the rest of the SDB’s team, will assist you with analyzing what practices can be used on your project to ensure you make the appropriate decisions.
As Denver communities grow, the demand for resources, infrastructure, and housing also increases. Sustainable Design Build also recognizes that when adding to existing communities there must be considerations made to the surrounding areas. SDB works with partners in finding solutions that gently ease density and consumption so that neighborhoods are not contrasted by structures that are out of place. Examples of this would be where a new multi-family building will expand existing roads to help with traffic. Or commercial buildings will utilize renewable energy sources to ease the existing load consumption of the neighborhood. All of these considerations and more are made for the betterment of the local community and its residents.

- Green space at grade or on roof
- On-site renewables
- Off-site renewables
- Reduce or eliminate thermal bridging
