With the heightened concern growing for our environmental situation the need for greener building practices and higher energy efficiency is dire.

At Ben Nelson Contractor we are equally concerned about our industry’s impact and are actively committed to learning and implementing green building practices. We care about this earth and we want are company to reflect that. Organizations such as the U.S. Green Building Council and Earth Craft are setting green standards which are not only better environmentally but are also more cost effective.
