Sustainable Building Techniques Checklist Mobile App

The Sustainable Building Techniques Checklist is used to ensure that building materials, sustainable construction and other important elements are being used as part of the design and construction process. Specific to sustainable construction techniques, the app replaces paper checklists and is easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet.

Using the app helps identify simple techniques that can be applied to site planning and the sustainable construction process to reduce the environmental impact and overall development costs. The app looks at a variety of items, such as sustainable architecture, renewable energy, indoor air quality and more. By following the Sustainable Building Techniques Checklist, you can help ensure that you are following recommended sustainable development practices when completing commercial buildings and in residential building design.
