Eco Brooklyn is a green design and build firm that greens co-ops, condominiums and brownstones within New York City. We specialize in all aspects of energy efficiency and ecological green renovations.
We offer the following services:
Green Design/Construction – We work with architects to offer the full service from Design to construction. Or we can work as the GC on a job that already has the architect in place. Being in Brooklyn we have a lot of experience with Brownstone renovations using as much salvaged material as possible. We also design and build the following:
- shipping container buildings
- earthship buildings
- Passive House buildings
- straw bale buildings
- composting toilets
- grey water systems
- solar PV and thermal
- earthen floors
Eco Landscape – We offer both hardscaping and softscaping for all services of the building – front and back garden, roof and walls. We also build ponds, streams and natural swimming pools. We design and install the following:
- green roofs
- native plant gardens
- salvaged material decks
- natural swimming pools
- living machines
- natural ponds, wetlands and streams
- edible landscapes
- wildlife habitats
Green Consulting – We are happy to offer our experience on all aspects of green and energy efficient construction.
All our jobs have three goals:
- Produce zero waste during the deconstruction and building
- Consume zero new materials during the rebuilding process
- Create a home that needs zero energy to run
We do this by reusing as much as possible, avoiding buying new materials, and building energy efficient homes that run on their own. We don’t always meet our goals but we are getting close. A key element in this equation is our adherence to the German Passive House standard (AKA Passiv Haus). We have staff certified in this system and our jobs implement all or some of these techniques depending on the job.
Because of the holistic aspect of green building we do the whole green building package, from full renovations, green roofs, solar PV and thermal, and green building consulting. We have a team of green building professionals. We design, build, expedite and give professional tax consulting for a green job.
We work with an Engineer, Architect, Green Roof Expert, Solar Installer, High Efficiency Heating Installer, Green Experienced Lawyer and an Tax Rebate Accountant experienced in preparing taxes involving the many available rebates for green building.
