The time has come when it is just as important to meet financial
ends as well as demands for high quality. You already know that it is
now a real possibility with no need to lower your expectations. There is
a wide range of applications for steel buildings, commercial use is
only one among them and there is the possibility for custom design a
commercial metal building for any application.
There are a number
of highly significant factors when operating your business. It is of
utmost importance to keep your customers and welcome new ones just as
well as see your revenue grow. Your business is also to maintain quality
standards your clients are used to even in a time of challenges of
growth and change in premises that may result in construction setbacks.
Closing your business even for the shortest of periods could bring
disastrous results that can not be afforded.
Today even the
construction of metal commercial buildings is practical reality with
direct financial advantage. Steel buildings are just as strong as
traditional buildings but come with the benefit of lower price and much
shorter construction time!
There are many advancements in building materials that assist in
saving money and energy. Though research on this topic was initially
launched for energy preservation purposes, it also helps in saving money
as well as preserving environment.
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) has determined that nearly $40 billion is spent to air
condition buildings in US, which amounts to one-sixth of the total
electricity generated annually. In order to cut down these costs, EPA
has come up with different roof materials and plans.
products should meet two specific conditions namely (1) They must be
reflective, referring to the amount of light energy being reflected away
instead of absorbing and (2) They must have high emissivity, referring
to the quickness of how the absorbed energy is emitted into the
By research, it has been found that light colors
are effective in reduction of peak demand for cool energy in buildings.
Normally, the roof system is the heavily exposed part of a building to
sun and it tends to absorb energy, serving as a large heat sink. Hence
based on the color of the roof and its reflective nature, the
temperature rise within the roofing system can be altered. When the roof
is enveloped by a white reflective material similar to a single ply
membrane, plenum air space temperature lowers to 90ºF unlike 120ºF in
the case of dark-colored roofs.
Do you have a Caribbean property story to share? Well here is your opportunity to shine by posting your story on the Caribbean Land and Property Blog.
We are looking for your contributions of 300-400 word blog posts on developing or maintaining property in the Caribbean, especially those which have an environmental component.
Are you building your own home or have an unusual tale to tell? Are you installing solar, micro-hydro or even a windmill? Do you live self-sufficiently off your land or have you created a large farm? Well we want to ensure your experience and expertise is acknowledged and shared with the rest of the Caribbean region.
We are also interested in hearing from architects, planners and renewable energy businesses with features on how we can sustainably develop, enhance and protect property in the Caribbean.
