Advancing Green Building Construction
Green, Solar & Sustainable Buildings
High Performance. Sustainable. Green. For LEMA, each of these concepts goes hand-in-hand with being a better builder-taking care of every community we serve. Setting new standards for green building construction. Promoting buildings that are environmentally responsible places to do business. And, operating our own company in the same way.
As a green construction company LEMA strives to meet community and national standards in high performance building. Creating innovative structures that cleaned form with functions, in harmony with the environment. Through leadership in the greater green movement, including with the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEMA employees are active participants in the green dialogue.
