The Harlan Company

John Harlan, president of The Harlan Company, wasn’t planning on making a green building—or rather, the greenest building. But in 2015, he and others at the company learned about a private school in Missouri that needed a remotely located classroom built to the highest environmental standards set by the Living Building Challenge (LBC). The company […]

Setty & Associates International

Originally the nation’s first public high school for African-Americans, Dunbar High School in Washington, D.C., had fallen into such disrepair that in 2011, the district opted not to renovate but to raze and rebuild. “A dark, dingy and nearly windowless high-rise,” the Washington Post deemed it. Its principal likened it to a prison. Its replacement […]

Tectonic Systems Inc.

People have been building with stones, blocks and bricks since before they had language to describe what they were building. Sturdy, fireproof and low maintenance, stone buildings have carried humanity from the temples and fortresses of ancient civilizations to modern skyscrapers. As the times have changed and the materials have evolved, the need for craftsmanship […]

Atlantic Clean Energy Supply LLC

Gene Li knows better than to take a well-lit street for granted. In 2015, his clean energy equipment supplier and engineering consultant company, Atlantic Clean Energy Supply LLC (ACES), was approached by a small coastal city in Long Island, New York, because one of the town’s neighborhoods didn’t have access to the street light power […]

Legatus6

Legatus6 is in the midst of building a 1.75 megawatt solar system that will feed 13.2 kilovolts into the power distribution loop at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, Florida. Working with that much power, while working within the federal government’s stringent requirements, has become Legatus6’s niche. It’s a niche that happened by accident, says […]

Praesidium Homes LLC

In 2015, when R. Vaughn Poppell and Tim Tucker founded Praesidium Homes LLC, a construction company specializing in insulated concrete forms (ICFs), their goal was to bring a superior method of building to the “average Joe” of Tallahassee, Florida, which meant overcoming how ICFs are viewed. ICF wall systems have been around since World War […]

Williams Creek Consulting

In psychology, there is a German term, “gestalt,” that has no direct translation. It refers to the idea that, often, objects or systems are perceived as greater than the sum of their parts—for instance, an image made from paint strokes isn’t just a blob of many colors, it’s a portrait. Urban infrastructure has long been […]

M&E Engineers Inc.

While pursuing industrial engineering at Rutgers University, William Amann worked for a mechanical contractor and couldn’t believe how little attention was paid to energy. In one instance, he found a huge two-inch gap between the walls and roof that went completely around a large commercial building. But it wasn’t until March 28, 1979, when the […]

Metro Green Construction LLC

There’s a kind of “all or nothing” mentality when it comes to green building. Many people think they need LEED certification in order for a building to be green, but because LEED certification is expensive, builders often opt for the conventional route and forego all green building technology. Cole Vickers, founder of Metro Green Construction, […]

I was contacted as a nominee for the Greenbuild Editor’s Choice 2016 recognition and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Working with US Builders Review has been a blessing for my company. Erica Berry took an awesome interview in the initial call as she gathered data for the article. She was concerned about how we became us, and she made me feel important by listening and taking notes. Then there is Ian Nichols who made me feel so comfortable in sharing my story, and Molly Shaw who interviewed me as well, as she was getting ready to create an awesome article about my company -- and I must say she nailed it on the first run! What a pleasure it has been to work with everyone. This feature on Container Homes USA will help me push the company into the forefront at the Greenbuild Expo 2016.
— Derrick C. W. Childs, Director Construction & Design, Container Homes USA
My experience with US Builders Review was positive from start to finish. The staff conducted each interaction with the utmost professionalism, whether over the phone or by email. Beginning with the initial telephone interview US Builders Review carefully gathered information to form a draft document then incorporated my minimal edits required to achieve factual accuracy in the finished article. US Builders Review is a pleasure to work with.
