As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, MarketOne Builders understands the impact that sustainable building design and construction can have for our client, the community, and the environment. In addition to creating buildings and spaces that reduce the carbon footprint, the impact is also seen in the bottom line. Sustainable buildings can reduce long-term costs and increase productivity through design.
It all starts with our team. We provide the opportunity and culture for our employees to advance their education and knowledge of sustainable design and construction. This allows us as a company to provide recommendations and sustainable practices for our clients.
We are committed to minimizing the impact on the environment and through our experience with U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program or LEED, we ensure a standard is followed throughout project development to meet, or exceed, the metrics that matter most. MarketOne has achieved LEED certification for numerous projects, representing thousands of square feet of office space. Multiple MarketOne employees are LEED-accredited, allowing us to provide sustainable expertise on any project.
Living Building Challenge – Arch | Nexus SAC
The Living Building Challenge is the world’s most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings. People from around the world use the International Living Future Institute regenerative design framework to create spaces that, like a flower, give more than they take. Our client, Architectural Nexus, was the first in California to aspire to meet this challenge and we are proud to announce that after a 3-year journey, Arch | Nexus SAC is Living Certified.
Of the 19 Living Certified projects, Arch | Nexus SAC is the first in the world to be an adaptive re-use of an existing building. No other project in the world exists like it. Every single building material item, including every last nail and panel, was reused.
This project has garnered a number of sustainable and green building awards, including both an Engineering News-Record (ENR)-Northern California’s Green Project of the Year as well as the ENR National Award for Best Green Project Completion. The project was also recognized locally as the 2017 Best Real Estate Project by Sacramento Business Journal.
