We formed Root Design Build Inc. in January of 2008 when VJ Construction, a building company with sixteen years experience, expanded to offer its clients a full building package that includes design services. The new firm emphasized sustainability—and a holistic approach that became sharper with the ability to implement green principles beginning in the design phase.

The focus on green principles doesn’t end with building design, however. We apply these same principles to the complete building cycle, which includes:

increasing the efficiency with which buildings use resources such as energy, water, and materials

reducing building impact on human health and the environment through better site selection, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal
