Green Commercial Building video

Home Inspector with International Property Inspection

NACHI TV is producing episodes of various subjects of interest to inspectors. Although they're designed for inspectors, these videos will also be relevant to other real estate professionals and buyers. View episode 12 as we tour this exceptional building and learn about the green design, systems and components which comprise EPA region 8 headquarters in Denver.

This building was built to be green from the ground up, showing the EPA practicing what they preach and incorporating into the design such energy-efficient features such as photovoltaics which convert sunlight directly into electricitry and daylighting systems which bounce natural light deep into the building. From the use of natural, sustainable materials and people-friendly office furniture  to the  green roofand much more, there's a lot to be learned here. Accompanying us was Jim Bleckledge, project manager for construction.
