What is Green Building?

Planet Development Company is a certified New Mexico Green Builder. 

Green Building is the use of more resource efficient supplies and methods to build your home to make it more energy, water, and resource efficient. The purpose of green building is to construct homes that are more environmentally friendly and minimize the environmental impact that is left by our homes in our growing community. 

In order to do this our company offers an alternative to regular 2x6 construction in the form of Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF's). ICF's offer solid, long lasting construction that provides two layers of foam installation. These ICF blocks allow for better insulation of your home resulting in greater energy efficiency. Not only that, but our company installs the most energy efficient appliances, windows, and other fixtures such as low flow faucets and toilets, which conserve water. As a company we have made it our goal to provide our customers with the options to make their homes as resource efficient as they please.
