EXOTERRA is Latin for “out of Earth.” It is the foundational principle of this firm; essential to what we do, how we live and what legacy we leave behind. It implies a thoughtfulness about nature, ecology, conservation and preservation. Our cultural mentality must shift towards a Cradle to Cradle mindset. The resources we take out of the Earth must strive to be replenished in a natural and balanced cycle. The built environment plays a tremendous role in this natural cycle either positively or negatively. Buildings in America use 70% of all energy generated in this country, while the construction of these buildings contribute to more than 35% of all land fill waste generated. Indoor Air Quality in many buildings and homes is five times more polluted than the outside air. We flush billions of gallons of potable water down the drain annually while debating over ways to locate and acquire more resources. “More” is simply not the answer. Shifting our cultural mindset and practices is no longer optional. Sustainability, conservation, environmentalism and conservancy must become key foci for our progress to make a difference for future generations.
Global Green Building Solutions...Locally is not only a tag line, but a principle that benefits not only the environment and future generations, but also individuals here and now. Intelligent design, which is synonymous with good stewardship, can often create a net cash flow situation for the home or building owner. An integrated design process is essential in a sustainable design process to maximize the potential for the most responsive design solutions. Solutions that not only impact the look or feel of a space or building, but also work within the constraints of budget, schedule, program and preferences all while carefully considering the environment, life-cycle costs and impacts of a project.
Through the implementation of Green Building Programs, education and related services, EXOTERRA SOLUTIONS seeks to impact our world through creative, sustainable design, consulting, construction and subsistence.
