Salvaged Sign

Kiki Neumann collects license plates as well as sign letters, and likes to make wonderful art pieces out of them, among a host of other retrofit artistic endeavors. 

Talented Margot Gourdin was an intern with the GBRC at the time, pursuing her architecture degree at PVAMU.  Tasked with painting the sign letters to make them more understandable, she chose the color scheme and painted each one. 

Case Studies

Case Studies are a two page format of LEED Certified buildings in the City of Houston that provided free public tours after they became certified. 

The four buttons above indicate the sorting by the LEED Rating System (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design: www.usgbc.org).

Tax Incentives

The ARRA extended the many consumer tax incentives originally introduced in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, allowing for Americans to easily afford energy efficient products and fixtures.

There are many energy incentives available to you today. We know that the thought of Green Building can be somewhat discouraging when you take into consideration the amount of product cost and installation. For this very reason we have provided a list of tax incentives, rebates,and abatements for your green building project to be as ecological and economically friendly as possible.
