Green, green, green. Every time you turn around in the construction industry, it seems that word pops up these days. Just what is green construction anyway? If you ask my father, he would probably tell you it is any building with a coat of paint splashed on it in a hue that falls somewhere between yellow and blue on the color spectrum. And he'd be right in one sense, but that's not what we're talking about when we say green construction in this day and age. Although there are many ways to define the term, in general it usually refers to a building that achieves one of the certification levels under the United States Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.
