Green Building – Real People Doing Real Good

Eco Brooklyn is an innovative green building company focused on turning New York green through low resource material usage and energy efficient construction. We offer a full range of services from design to construction.

The Eco Brooklyn team sees the home as a living being with inner organs, lungs, a skin and a body. We attempt to build the home so that it will remain healthy and safe for many years to come. We specialize in what we call the “green aesthetic” or Wabi-Sabi design, which incorporates the use of natural materials, like wood and clay, and provides a home that is soothing and invigorating. We combine these elements with attention to the overall Feng Shui of each microcosm and macrocosm in the home.

Our clients are forward thinking Brooklyn and Manhattan brownstone owners seeking to make the world a greener place through innovative green building techniques. Our renovations push the envelope of and redefine green building for Brooklyn and NY brownstones.

In addition to completing Brownstone renovations for clients, Eco Brooklyn also invests in houses and “greens” them. These houses are used as New York community outreach platforms to help train local workers and educate the community in good green building techniques.

Eco Brooklyn’s green renovation strives for three goals for deconstruction, rebuilding and the finished home:

  • Zero or negative waste created
  • Zero or negative new materials used
  • A home that requires zero energy to run and actually generates extra energy.

We call this  the Zero Brownstone and achieve it through salvage, green roofs, gray water and other methods. Part of our technique is the Passive House standard – a green brownstone that requires little or no heating and cooling.

  • This is a fantastic site! I’d love to feature it my column about entrepreneurship in Examiner.com. Is that of interest to you? You can view my column at: http://www.examiner.com/x-2901-NY-Business-Strategies-Examiner

    I am very interested in your green dream job posting. I have a BA in Ecological Design from Prescott College. I have been working in Construction for five years as a carpenter. I am beginning a design/build company here in Colorado where I will need to look for an assistant. I would like to learn more about your urban approach to green building.

    We are looking to have our building (five story apartment bldg) in Brooklyn renovated utilizing as many green technologies and methodologies as possible. We came across your site while researching. We would be interested in meeting with you to discuss our project.

    Thank you,

    We are looking to have students work on a eco-friendly community development project. Part of the project would involve the complete restoration of a store front building converting its electric wiring by assisting in the installation of solar systems to reduce energy costs. WE would be interested in meeting with you to discuss our project via web conference.

    All the Best,
    Akua Anokye

    Hello,
    My name is David Ornvold. I recently graduated from Skidmore College with a bachelors in Environmental Studies and am currently in the process of completing a Certificate in Sustainable Building and Design at the Yestermorrow Design/Build School in central Vermont. I plan to move to Brooklyn this coming December and am interested in joining your design-build team. I am knowledgeable in the field of
    sustainable/regenerative building and design and feel passionate about greening metropolitan areas. More specifically, my interests include living buildings (i.e. the concept of the vertical farm), passive solar design, gray/black water treatment, creative use of salvaged materials, use of PV energy, and increasing home efficiency through conscious design. I also have experience as an independent contractor and therefore feel more than comfortable on construction sites. I would be happy to send you my résumé along with a cover letter should you desire further information.
    Best wishes,

    -David Ornvold-

    Hello. This site is very amazing.

  • Joshua Manes

    Hello. I am a local Brooklyn Architect (licensed in NY), looking to connect with forward-thinking green builders, clients, and consultants in the area. I’m especially interested in passive house construction methods for brownstone renovations.

    I read an article in (Whole Living) magazine, about painting your roof white, to save energy. I realize it would reflect heat in summer,but how would this help in winter? I already have bright,shiny, galvanized,sheet metal roof on my home. Would this work as well? I live in upstate N.Y.(Plattsburgh) ,where it generally gets colder then NYC. It would be nice to save on the heating bill! Thank you

  • Hi there, just wanted to tell you, I liked this blog post.

    It was inspiring. Keep on posting!

  • Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.
    I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  • In other words, look for any staining on the insulation, drywall or
    wood framing. Once the power is removed, you
    now need to get as much water out of the Black – Berry as
    you can. The last thing you want to hear is that your plasma TV has gotten water damaged.

  • What is your position on zero toxins?
