It’s no longer an option to whether or not you or your company takes an environment stance to make a difference, it’s a necessity
New Holland, PA (Vocus) July 8, 2010
Central Pennsylvania’s premier quality builder, CB Structures, provides the highest design, engineering and construction of quality pole barns, including a horse barn and storage buildings, while utilizing environmentally sustainable solutions.
CB Structures is able to minimize the environmental impact of all their buildings, from the planning and execution of the design and material selection to low life-cycle costs. “It’s no longer an option to whether or not you or your company takes an environment stance to make a difference, it’s a necessity,” says John Gehr, Marketing Manager, CB Structures, Inc. “We assure our customers that they are getting a quality product but also getting an environmentally friendly one, from the beginning to end of the building process.”
The family-owned business orders and manufactures to the exact size of the building blueprints and plans. In doing so, allows the company to have no additional excess of waste. If for some reason excess waste accumulates, the packages, metal and wood are recycled at various facilities in their area.
The company uses wooden posts to serve as the foundation for many designs. Due to this, they only purchase the supplies and lumber from suppliers who engage in responsible forest management. The sheet metal used to encase the wooden poles has a recycled content of over 95%. The metal also reflects most of the solar energy, resulting in less consumption to heat or cool the space. CB Structures has also dedicated hardware, including screws and nails to steel and gambrel roofs, to be purchased from eco-friendly companies.
By incorporating higher efficiency appliances and reducing energy costs, CB Structures delivers a building that is eco-friendly and cost efficient with decreased operating and maintenance costs throughout building process. By installing efficient lighting, effective insulation to walls and windows, reflective roof and insulated floor materials, the company is able to provide an affordable, eco-friendly building solution with low operational maintenance costs.
