Eco Brooklyn Inc. is an innovative green contracting and design firm in Brooklyn with one simple focus: to Turn New York Green!
Our background is in green real estate, development, renovation and sustainable energy. Led by Green Builder Gennaro Brooks-Church, Eco Brooklyn is passionate about using old and new technologies to increase the quality of living while reducing costs and benefiting the environment.
Depending on the need, Gennaro Brooks-Church draws from a wide circle of fellow green builders, whether it be a certified a green roof installer, a green real estate broker, a radiant floor specialist, a green real estate manager, a solar thermal installer, a Solar PV installer, a high efficiency boiler specialist, and a green educator.
We focus these skills on building high quality and energy efficient structures that are durable and low cost. Attention is put on using salvaged, sustainable and local materials.
Our design skills encompass architectural design and structural engineering, allowing us to provide the entire service from idea to a finished product. We integrate intelligent green techniques with aesthetic design and use passive solar strategies to maximize natural heating and cooling as well as visual aesthetics. Our intelligent ventilation techniques, both natural and mechanical, create fresh air homes that are comfortable and healthy. We build along the Passive House standard from Germany.
Our heating design is centered on maximum comfort and minimum cost. Whether it is a split system heat pump, radiant flooring, geothermal, solar thermal, high efficiency boilers or a combination, our heating and cooling systems are precisely fitted for the space and budget.
Eco Brooklyn is fully licensed and insured to do home improvement work in the state of NY. Insurance includes: Liability, Disability and Workers Compensation. Liability is up to $2 Million.
Eco Brooklyn adheres to the ethics outlined in our membership with Sustainable Business Network New York City. The ethical sustainable business practices are specified in the triple bottom line – People, Planet, and Profit. Every decision we make considers whether all the people involved, the planet as a whole and the bottom line of everyone involved benefits from the action.
As a continuation to this we build along the Build It Forward criteria where all building must be made to last at least one hundred years, be a desirable gift to future generations and not drain existing resources.
With this strategy we hope to turn Brooklyn green!
