Share Article

Angus Reed, sustainable development expert, has published a blog on The Huffington Post on how construction techniques, such as modular, allow developers to incorporate green methods into all aspects of their projects.

We are very focused on modular innovations, and other disruptive construction techniques.

The growing preference for green buildings, constructed to reduce overall environmental impact, represents a major trend in the U.S. and around the globe. Building tenants are increasing looking for space that uses less water, energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and are motivated by certifications from organizations such as LEED or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

Yet green buildings themselves are just a part of an improved environmental story. Another important piece of the puzzle are the new techniques making the actual construction and renovation of buildings more ecofriendly as well.

In the article, Reed notes that modular construction can create environmental benefits because these projects reduce waste, create less traffic at the job site, and require shorter schedules to complete. These projects are partially built inside in a factory-like setting, ensuring that less materials get damaged by the elements.

Reed said: “We are very focused on modular innovations, and other disruptive construction techniques. There are a number of companies developing and using new technologies, new methodologies and developing new intellectual property to create efficiency, cost reductions and sustainability."

Reed has deep expertise in green property development and led the development team for The Hydro Tasmania Consulting building the first Tasmanian office building to be awarded Australia’s 5-Star Green Star environmental rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

Reed is focused on bringing his expertise, honed in his native Australia, to developments in the New York metro area. As managing director of acquisitions at Lotus he brings his proven ability to pursue complex transitions aggressively with an eye towards design excellence and sustainability.
