Green solutions to maximize facility use and profit
According to an article by Barry Stiles in Facility Executive, when you can creatively and successfully maximize facility use, you solve a host of issues. For one, taking advantage of today’s advanced capabilities means you won’t have to pay yesterday’s high prices for energy and operational costs. If you recognize the need for change and act quickly, you’ll find that better usage of available tools and strategies leads to immense savings.
Older, slower ways of doing things typically require more
money and more room to work. Incomplete land utilization means facilities need
more space to accomplish the same results. Newer strategies, such as using
vegetation to insulate roofs or insulated concrete form (ICF) blocks to
insulate buildings, actually cost less than old techniques. At the same time,
they save money on operating and construction costs.
Green solutions like these are no longer expensive luxuries
for modern facilities.
