Sustainability has become a fundamental part of the valuation process for both residential and commercial properties. In an effort to expand participation, an increasing number of municipalities are instituting mandatory energy and efficiency requirements for new and existing buildings. California adopted a mandatory green building code called CALGreen and New York City recently upgraded its efforts with the recent passage of Green Building laws. Some of these mandates include installing live rooftop plant gardens accompanied by a minimal solar system and a range of energy-saving measures. Below, is a collection of building accessories and ideas that can help property owners and managers to reduce carbon and energy costs. Included are energy-saving LED lighting solutions, skylights for warehouses and office spaces, along with a selection of live potted plants chosen for their tolerance to the extreme fluctuations of rooftop temperatures.
