questions about going green?

Before starting any project, we lay the groundwork with big picture thinking, the FUN stuff! What are my project's financial goals?  What is the added-value of building green and how does it affect my bottom line?  How can we create a unique and really cool community? What are the sustainability, social and economic development goals of my project? How can we go green but still save money?  How can the project weave into the local neighborhood? The environment? ...The world? Just ask!
