What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? Actively engaged in commercial and residential construction on a daily basis through various wholly-owned or managed entities all sharing a common commitment to green building. Synergy Green Building Group provides green building design, products, building systems, construction expertise and consulting. All products, building systems and professional services are helping to build a more eco-friendly world. The most effective green projects are created when there is synergy between all members of a project team. We serve as a catalyst in this regard. We augment a project team’s resources with dedication, knowledge and experience regarding sustainable building design, construction and operation. I would like to continue to advance the idea that when you build green, everyone profits (environmentally, socially and economically).
