Green Buildings

Green buildings are a smart choice for anyone looking for an eco-friendly and efficient building solution. These structures are made from recyclable steel, making them a sustainable option. They are designed to be energy-efficient, helping to reduce carbon footprint and save on energy costs. Choosing these buildings means you’re making a good choice for yourself and the planet.

Why Choose Powerbilt Green Buildings?

Our strong green buildings are designed and constructed for energy efficiency. Our goal is to help reduce greenhouse gases while employing efficient manufacturing techniques that help control global warming. We operate under the aggressive guidelines of Energy Star, which is an international standard for energy-efficient products.

The program helps to save money and reduce wasteful practices by using methods safe for the environment. We operate under the guiding principles that call for integrated design, energy performance, indoor environmental quality, and materials aimed to help save energy and protect our planet. Results are already adding up – Americans saved enough energy to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 29 million cars, all while saving 19 billion on their energy bills.

Our Design Process

We design and manufacture our Quonset style greenhouse buildings using 80% recycled steel. This practice helps to eliminate unnecessary waste and produce a resource with a longer life cycle. Steel is non-toxic and does not contaminate indoor air quality, making it safer for children and the elderly. We provide energy-efficient skylights, reducing harmful UV rays and saving electricity costs. Our connector plate system eliminates the need for wood and excess concrete, passing the savings to our customers.

The energy conservation methods practiced by our company provide an alternative building model for you and your family to use and enjoy while contributing to environmental protection and reducing energy waste. We ask you to consider these energy saving guidelines before starting your next project. Join Powerbilt Steel Buildings and millions of other Americans who have set goals to do their part by eliminating waste and beginning to live a green life. Your contributions will help ensure that future generations have the opportunity to live and enjoy a safe and protected planet for many years to come.

We have designed the Powerbilt 3G building the “GO GREEN GARAGE“

Features of Our Green Buildings

Building features included in our Green Garage are as follows:

  1. (2) 2-foot wide x 10-foot long corrugated skylights, which reduce daytime electric lighting.
  2. Painted arch and endwalls with next-generation silicone-polyester Cerama-A-Star Akzo Nobel Cool Paint for high SR (Solar Reflectivity) .6 rating 40-year warranty against peeling, flaking, and cracking. The coatings accommodate “Cool” technology and “Green” building compliance by significantly reducing energy consumption and associated costs, especially in hot climates.
  3. 80% Recycled Solid Steel
  4. (2) 12-foot wide, non-powered gravity Turbo Ventilators, reduce and remove hot air in summer and moisture laden air in winter. Turbines rotate with a passing breeze and create a strong upward draft. Inside air is drawn out and exhausted outside.
  5. Solid steel 10×10 insulated overhead door
  6. Solid steel 3×7 insulated man door
  7. R-10 Reinforced Vinyl Insulation- saving energy by keeping the building cool in summer and warmer in the winter.
  8. Freight Sharing/Community freight for building delivery, thus saving fossil fuels.

Quonset Green Buildings Environmental Impact Vs. Traditional Buildings

The cool thing about steel is that when we melt it down to recycle and make new things, it stays just as strong and useful as it was before. This is a special feature of steel that you don’t often see in other recycled materials.

When we think about building materials like wood, brick, and steel, each one affects the environment in its own way. It’s important to think about two things here. First, consider the environmental cost at the beginning, like what it takes to get these materials ready for building. Second, we need to think about the long-term impact, like what happens to these materials over time. Steel stands out because even after many years of being recycled over and over, it stays strong and useful. This makes it a better choice for the environment than wood or brick.

How to Create an Eco-Friendly Steel Building

Designing an environmentally friendly Quonset Hut Greenhouse involves several smart strategies to make the most of its sustainability. Here are some key ways to do this:

  1. Utilize the Renewable Resources
    • Make the most of natural sunlight by installing big windows.
    • Use solar power for your energy needs. This not only saves electricity but also uses a clean, renewable energy source.
  2. High-Efficiency Windows and Insulation
    • Choose windows and insulation that are really good at saving energy.
    • This helps keep the inside temperature comfortable without using too much energy, making the building more efficient.
  3. Maximize Solar Gain
    • Arrange the windows, walls, and other parts of the building to get as much natural light as possible.
    • This means you’ll rely less on electric lights during the day, saving energy and making the building eco-friendlier.
  4. Install On-Site Renewable Energy Sources
    • Consider using energy sources like solar panels, wind turbines, small hydropower systems, or biomass.
    • These can greatly reduce the environmental impact of your building.

By following these steps, you can design a steel building that’s strong, durable, and kind to our environment.
