Design Smart | Build Efficient
Why be Efficient?
Efficiency applies in a variety of ways to design / build projects.  We plan for efficiency in the design phase and consider it with spatial relationships, solar orientations, products, materials and finish selections.  Part of being efficient is considering sustainability factors as well.  ARCURBwill find ways to bring efficiency to you and respect your budget at the same time.  A project that has been smartly designed to incorporate energy efficiency will save you on operating costs.  Also there are now Energy Efficient Mortgages available that offer lower interest rates.
The interior environment provides a significant opportunity for efficiency principles.  The building envelope, insulation levels, window and door selection as well as the mechanical and plumbing systems will be evaluated.  Humidity control is especially significant in Florida and there are opportunities to address this through the design / build process and equipment selection.
If there is an opportunity to take advantage of being in the "Sunshine State" we will explore solar options.
