Green and Sustainable Construction
Transforming the Built Environment
Sustainable construction by Brock Smith’s definition is the idea that a home should be built in ways that do not use irreplaceable resources or damage the environment, that they should reduce power from fossil fuel sources, and that they should enhance the health and well-being of the people who live there.
Brock has always been on the leading edge of innovation with his sustainable methods and smart uses of green and modern construction techniques. His homes are often outfitted with a combination of solar energy and geo-thermal heat pump systems, insulating concrete forms, radiant floors, reclaimed and recycled materials, and advanced home automation.
He builds three and four-star environmentally-friendly homes “not to just put a sticker on them,” but to create an economically efficient structure that is functional, comfortable, and livable. He does all of this while accommodating your dreams, family, and lifestyle.
Transforming the environment. One Custom Home at a time.
Reclaimed Materials and Resources
Lumber, Timbers, Beams, Flooring
Brock Smith is proud to provide your project with reclaimed wood products which are an outstanding and responsible alternative to conventionally or even sustainably-harvested lumber, helping to ensure that natural resources will be available in the future.
Brock concentrates on locally sourced wood that is often reclaimed from 100+ year-old structures. Architects are readily incorporating these products into his homes because of their timeless character and inherent beauty. They have become a major component of environmentally responsible building practices.
He especially enjoys creating beams, posts, mantles, and floors of reclaimed wood which has a warm, aged look that is not available with other products. Homeowners are pleased with the charm of an oversized mantle, posts and beams from a century-old wharehouse, or a floor of reclaimed barn wood, helping make their new Custom Home the exceptional dream home they have envisioned.
Conserving the environment. One beam at a time.
