Building Materials

Building Materials Poster

I analyzed the cost effectiveness of sustainable building materials. I found that the materials themselves don't have a huge effect on the cost. It is the consultant fees required to design and test the building that add to the price. But the additional expense pays for itself within 3 to 5 years and after 20 years a building can save $50 a square foot each year.
