Keevan Homes has the expertise and experience to carry out a “green” approach for your building project. Green homes create less waste, use less energy, water and natural resources, and are more durable and comfortable for occupants. Keevan Homes can help “green” your project so that your building costs less to operate and maintain, as well as building homes in alliance with our environment and natural resources.
There is a range of “green” approaches possible: from choosing energy efficiency in the home’s structure and systems, to fulfilling high standards of environmental performance and excellence through design, construction, operations and maintenance.
