“The greenest building is the one that is already built.”
Sustainability and healthy buildings aren’t just for new construction projects. In fact, at re-habitat we feel it’s quite the opposite. As architect Carl Elefante stated about existing building being the greenest buildings, we owe it to our communities to preserve the history and character of the towns and cities that we call home. Syracuse, New York, and other cities across the country, all have an endless supply of one-of-a-kind structures that are waiting to be restored, and actively contribute to the local community and economy
At re-habitat, we will help you design the most eco-friendly building to fit your needs. While we love existing buildings, we understand the need to create new green structures as well. No matter the type of building, these spaces will be beneficial to their end-users, while creative aesthetically impactful spaces to fit your style, budget and project needs. We’re happy to jump into the project at any stage necessary – our project management services can help owners from project inception through construction completion, to deliver a superior project.
We are a Certified WBE Company in the City of Syracuse.
