There are many materials and methods to conserve energy and resources in the design of an equine facility. We have incorporated both active and passive solar design, use of recycled natural lumber and use of composite materials recycled into building materials. The large roof areas of barns and arenas have significant potential for water collection as well as support for solar panels. We analyze your microclimate to see what techniques are appropriate for your location.
An O2 compost system can turn expensive waste into a valuable soil additive. Energy wise lighting, well planned natural lighting, motion sensor controls, and appropriate heating devices can reduce your energy output and expenses. We stay current on Green Codes through continuing education and research on new building materials.
