Does a Green Building Really Cost More Upfront?

| Tuesday September 13th, 2005 | 0 Comments

sm-new-bldg.jpgThe Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee is one of the “greenest” buildings in the region, but has no LEED rating because certification costs were deemed too high given the non-profit’s budget. This is completely understandable for that situation, but should other added costs, such as construction and planning hinder the motivation to “go green”?
Gil Friend has a great collumn on GreenBiz this week detailing ways that up-front costs are disappearing. The ratings proceess is still costly, but aside from that – there is “essentially no correlation between greenness and cost”.
