Seeking Green Builders

Are you passionate about green building? Do you have building skills (metalwork, carpentry, electric, plumbing…)? Do you want to learn more in this area? Do you like to use unusual materials to build in innovative ways? Do you look at a product off the shelf and ask, “How can I built that myself better instead of buying it?”

Are you driven by ideals that green building can improve the world? Do you have a burning desire to be part of that improvement?

If yes then maybe we have a job for you.

We are an innovative green building company in Brooklyn looking for green building talent. Gray water, salvaged, solar power, solar thermal, radiant floors, insulation, recycling, dumpster diving, green roof, deconstruction……these are some of our favorite things for green brownstones in Brooklyn.

Our jobs are not like any other you’ve worked on. We are pushing the envelope of green building with very exciting and good results. We’re very idealistic in our views and apply them to action, both through lots of green building and an extensive education outreach program.

An example project is an entire gut of a brownstone. It is a large project involving seven levels from the radiant floor concrete slab to the solar PV covered pergola that sits over the green roof. We have
partnerships with a couple non-profit training organizations that send us interns so it is part show house part school part home.

We are looking for passionate people to be part of a tight and long term team that is turning Brooklyn and NY into a city of green buildings. Please contact us if interested.

    I believe your concept and its application are quite doable. I have built my own home here in Brooklyn, as well as other properties, using salvaged natural materials that tend to age well over time. I try to avoid the many new-age materials that, despite initially look good, lose their attractiveness after a few seasons or fail to develop that natural patina that is so appealing about recycled natural materials.
    Keep up the good work. I would love the opportunity to work with you.
