Next Generation Building Institute
Practical Sustainability in action
Fostering a quantum leap forward in building performance
A new standard for better buildings with lower costs
"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." - Albert Einstein
A broad network of professionals and organizations are leading a quantum leap forward in building design and construction: high performance buildings that function much better but cost a lot less to operate and maintain, buildings that fit in with the natural environment and contribute to a sustaining and sustainable built environment, buildings as if people mattered. Tucson is recognized nationally for being at the forefront of this work.
The results of the Next Generation Building Program have been far beyond what anyone expected. After analyzing typical building expenses, ways have been developed to cut the costs of bulding ownership by 25 to 50% - and even more. This amounts to a lot of money.
The Next Generation Building Institute offers a broad range of information, consulting and referral services for effectively applying sustainability to the built environment on a practical and cost-effective basis for individuals, communities, businesses and governments. These services include planning, design, construction, renovation and improvement of homes, buildings, communities, landscapes and ecosystems. Our focus is to create healthy, economical and satisfying living environments that fit in better with nature, so you and your world can thrive.
Now owners, designers and builders have a central resource to make their buildings the best they can be. Through the Institute you can access some of the most knowedgeable and experienced professionals in the country, as well as the unique Next Generation planning and design methodology that brings it all together.
Whether you are designing and constructing a new buiding or renovating an existing building, you can have much better and we can help.
