Designing for the Site
Your home can heat and cool itself. We have built zero energy homes, homes that average $43/month utilities, and some really big ones that operate for less than you would expect.
By taking into account wind, sun, slope, terrain, and other factors it is possible to minimize (or eliminate) operating expenses. Have Common Advantage work with you to optimize siting and design.
Working with your Architect or Plans
We are a design/build firm, but we are willing to work with your existing plans and/or architect. Wherever you are in the design process, we can help to optimize your Green building goals.
It's just math - deconstruction is often cheaper than demolition.
How it works
Common Advantage is paid to take down your building, process all reusable building materials, coordinate donation to local non-profits and recycle the remainder (+/- 20%) of the materials. Donation value offsets or often exceeds the cost of deconstruction.
Common Advantage has managed over a dozen deconstruction projects in SE Wisconsin, trained SBC crews in deconstruction technique and has developed deconstruction curricula for the BMRA.
Common Advantage performs all traditional remodeling services, but brings a green perspective to material selection, waste management and energy efficiency.
