Copper: Green Building

Smart, Sustainable Development

Sustainable, green construction is now a necessity. Building homes and offices with materials that use less electricity and water is becoming more of a requirement than an option.

Copper is one of the top material choices for structural reinforcements, cladding, roofing, window frames, plumbing, heating equipment and many other applications. Copper can be found in historic buildings as well as in new, modern architecture.

Copper contributes to sustainable construction through architectural designs, building wire systems, renewable energies conversion and better use of energy efficient systems.

Copper is one of the few materials that can be recycled without any loss in strength, making it a logical choice in an era of global sustainability.
