Since the early 1990s, we have seen a notable shift toward healthier and more resource-efficient building practices, better known as green building. The overall goal of green building is to lessen the impact of built structures on human and environmental health through sustainable design.
In simple terms, sustainability means finding a balance between growth and wellness. The population of our planet is growing, and with it the need to create more buildings. Finding ways to do so while at the same time reducing waste and conserving energy as well as natural resources has become increasingly more important.
It is no longer enough to think about how a building looks and functions. Instead, we need to take into consideration how that building impacts both the people inside of it and the surrounding environment. Because many of your design clients are likely thinking along these lines, introducing them to the concept of living design can help them demonstrate their commitment to sustainability.
At Sagegreenlife, we believe it is our responsibility to show architects, designers and the public how living design can help build a more sustainable future.
Our living wall systems are virtually self-sustaining and use 75 percent less water than any other system available today. Self-irrigation technology distributes the perfect amount of water to circulate evenly throughout the wall, making it 10 times more efficient than soil-based systems. And our 100 percent recyclable, non-decaying rockwool Biotiles™ ensure a cleaner and more energy-efficient system with minimal maintenance required.
Sagegreenlife vertical gardens are adaptable to any environment and designed to endure heat, cold, wind and even snow. The Biotiles are unique in their ability to insulate dormant plants in winter conditions and maintain life-protecting moisture for the longevity of plants — resulting in up to 95 percent plant survival rates.
Installing a Sagegreenlife living wall also helps with certification through LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and the WELL Building Standard, two prominent rating systems that measure environmental performance and reward building owners that have made priorities of public health, sustainability and environmental protection.
Some of the benefits of LEED and WELL certification for your clients include:
Establishing themselves (and their brands) as thought leaders who care about people and the environment
Promoting the health and well-being of their employees, tenants and occupants
Attracting and retaining more tenants, employees, clients and investors
Realizing meaningful return on investment through greater productivity, higher job satisfaction, decreased absences and increased business
Instantly increasing the value of their property
Finally, the mere presence of plants improves air quality by removing particulates and filtering toxins out of the air. And, because our vertical gardens absorb sound, they cut down significantly on noise pollution.
All of this, combined with the incredible health and wellness benefits of being in close proximity to plants and other vegetation, make the addition of a Sagegreenlife living wall system the perfect fit for your clients’ eco-conscious design goals.
