Energy efficient building for people and the planet
ENERGY EFFICIENT and WELLNESS ARCHITECTURE
At Guarino Construction, we believe in the Seven Generation Stewardship. The concept that urges the current generation of humans to live and work for the benefit of the seventh generations into the future. The Great Law of the Iroquois- which holds appropriate to think seven generations ahead and decide whether the decisions they make today would benefit their children seven generations into the future.
In the building industry we have a responsibility and commitment to assuring our connective link to a sustainable future.
At GC Construction, we offer our customers energy efficient building options through proper design, homesite placement, water collecting, solar panels, structured insulated panels, and timber frame construction. In addition we offer building with low VOC paints, clay, eco flooring, and using FSC certified or reclaimed wood.
