Sustainability Mission

For a home to be sustainable, it must first be durable. Timeless design and skilled craftsmanship combine to give a house sturdiness and beauty that will last for generations.

Sample of sustainable remodelBuilding science is an ever-changing field. We continually work to stay conversant with new technologies and best practices in sustainable building. Past projects have included features such as solar photovoltaic electricity, solar thermal hot water, rain water catchment for use in home, SIPS construction, FSC certified lumber, advanced framing, plumbing recirculation systems, hydronic radiant heat, and high performing insulation systems.

As a company with Urban as a name, we feel that we contribute to community building with our mission of improving close-in neighborhoods one home at a time. Our focus on neighborhood building also promotes the sustainable practices of alternative transportation and short commutes. For our part, two of the three UDBC company vehicles are run on B99 biodiesel fuel and our office is in the centrally located Burnside Rocket Building which is certified LEED Platinum.
