Case Studies Green Building

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, […]

OPX PLLC

“People are our biggest asset.” As the founder and managing partner of OPX PLLC, a design consultancy in Washington D.C., Steve Polo has heard his clients say that sentence countless times. “If that’s true,” Polo says, “then as a company you need to make sure you show it.” Ten years ago, while designing and renovating […]

DMR Architects

There’s a Nelson Mandela quote that reads, “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.” In a way, Lloyd Rosenberg, founder of DMR Architects, has done just that. When Rosenberg founded DMR Architects in 1991, the first buildings he designed were schools. […]

DHK Architects

The Northeast takes understandable pride in its heritage, but the transportation facilities may seem to be from another era. Hence, the need to preserve the former while updating the latter, and that’s a task often entrusted to Arnold “Mickey” Krockmalnic, one of three principals at DHK Architects in Boston and the point man for transportation […]

Custom Decorators Inc.

With every window, there’s an opportunity. An opportunity to save on heat and air conditioning. To enhance the aesthetics of the house, apartment, condo or commercial building. To let the sunshine in or to keep the drafts out. Even to control that window’s covering from afar using an app. And there’s an opportunity for someone […]

Commonwealth Architects

When it came to going green while redesigning one of the quintessential buildings in downtown Richmond, Virginia, Commonwealth Architects was part of a team that didn’t quite go for the gold but won it anyway. To be sure, Commonwealth Architects and its project partners, including the Virginia Department of General Services (DGS), Sustainable Design Consulting, […]

//3877

The scene opens on a typical Tuesday afternoon at //3877, a design and architecture firm in Washington, D.C. Inside the office—a wide open space with large colorful graffiti murals painted on the high-ceilinged grey walls—a few employees from partners to intern architects are dressed in running shoes and shorts, ready for the weekly office run […]

Acorn Sign Graphics

First impressions can be lasting, and when the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources [DENR] hoped to leave a good one, its general contractor, Brasfield & Gorrie, selected Acorn Sign Graphics to provide main entrance and interior signs for the DENR Raleigh headquarters. With distinct topography on a large 3D map beneath the […]

SRM Development LLC – Goggle Kirkland Phase II Project

A few years after SRM Development finished Google’s three building office complex in Kirkland, Washington, in 2007, the developer began thinking of ways to expand the project. In 2010, “we started looking at the vacant land across the way from the original three buildings, and started to formulate some thoughts about ways we could expand […]

I’m blown away with the value that could come out of our partnership through this article. Working with the US Builders Review team is something that I have never experienced before and every day I feel even more privileged to be with EJH Construction, I never take for granted the opportunities that have come my way.  I am so excited about what our future looks like based on the relationship that has been built with the US Builders Review team.
Jennifer Wilhelmsen – Director of Human Resources, EJH Construction Inc.
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.

What a great team US Builders has put in place! Having worked with Victor Martins a few years back, I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered our experience and contacted us again about an updated article. Not only did Victor brainstorm with me about content that would resonate with readers, but he assigned an excellent writer, Molly Shaw, to our account. Her interview with my client, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing, was professional and succinct; as was her writing style. We had very few edits and were pleased not only with the article, but how well it was enhanced by color photos. Much appreciated!
— Karen Bird, Owner of Strategic Marketing Services, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing
