We envision greener building for better living.
YOU’VE HEARD OF GREEN-WASHING?
Green-washing is where a company talks about being environmentally friendly but it’s mostly eye wash for PR purposes and to increase sales. That’s not us.
Salt Lake is a vibrant city. In 2015, it was voted top 5 of five significant “best place to live” ratings in the USA. Sitting between two majestic mountain ranges, our city offers stunning views and easy access to the outdoors. But, it also creates a bowl where air pollution often sits at unhealthy levels (aka “red air days”). In April 2016, Salt Lake City was ignominiously bestowed by the American Lung Association the 6th worst air quality in the nation.
HEALTH THREAT TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE IS POLLUTION
AIR POLLUTION COMES FROM BUILDINGS
Pioneering a greener future
Like the pioneers who settled this valley in 1847, Redfish Builders is blazing a trail for greener building by creating communities where people can make deliberately wise and sustainable choices in how and where they live. We are changing the way buildings are designed and constructed by using the latest in passive and solar technology. Our global consultants identify the best tools, systems, and methods to sustain eco-wise growth. Our vision extends to encouraging education and demand for green building to encourage city-wide change.
Going from bad air
to much better air.
OUR MODERN AESTHETIC IS EFFICIENT, GREEN AND COMFORTABLE
THE BEST AVAILABLE SCIENCE IS APPLIED TO EVERY ASPECT OF OUR PROJECT
Yes, driving significantly impacts our air, but did you know that 39% of our pollution comes from buildings? And it’s on track to get worse: In March of 2016, Forbes declared Salt Lake City as America’s 4th fastest growing city. The Utah Governor’s office estimates the population of Utah will double by 2050. It doesn’t take a scientist to see that means a lot more buildings and cars causing even more health problems down the road.
Walking the talk
Living Zenith at Liberty Park is the first in a series of net zero communities in highly walkable metro locations. But our vision is bigger than projects we have on the drawing board. We plan to share these technologies and best building practices with everyone we know through education and advocacy. We won’t rest until we see the green standard as the new standard in our state.
When you make yourself into zero, your power becomes invincible.
