How do you find an architect that knows green home remodel and design?
It’s not easy finding green help these days, but it is getting easier. Not only are more architecture schools and environmental programs out there focusing on green building, but, finding these graduates as well as seasoned architects with the eco-friendly passion is becoming more realistic.
When my husband and I graduated from architecture school with degrees in Landscape Architecture, we had learned enough to know the importance of highering an eco-friendly architect to assist us in our home building and remodeling adventures that are beyond our own design skills. We have settled in the Wasatch Mountains between Park City, Utah (home of the Sundance Film Festival, and some of the ‘best snow on earth’) and the Sundance Resort (Robert Redford‘s playground). A beautiful and serene place to work, learn, play, and lay our heads each night, though not the most saturated ‘green’ building area.
Where to begin your search (associates, family, friends)
I asked questions of people that I knew, but didn’t find a great green wealth of information this way. My contacts, friends and family at the time, were not in the ‘green’ circle. If your circle is more reliably green, this is a wonderful place to begin your search.
