The second decade of the 21st century marks a departure from traditional construction methodology and the arrival of improved sustainable practices in the field of construction services. Population growth and the rate of energy consumption, energy cost, carbon emissions, and other environmental concerns such as air pollution, global warming, landfill shortage, deforestation, shortage of resources, and resulting affects on human health are issues that have come to the forefront of American society. Federal energy policies, State Energy Master Plan goals and incentives, and International Building Code requirements attest to the present and continuing demand for informed, solution-driven contractors.
Groundswell was conceived to face these challenges.
“When we rebuild homes, we build relationships.”
