Green Commercial Buildings

by Nicole Stevens

green building car olinaGoing green has become a top priority with most business, big and small, over the years. A successful business knows how to save money, and the best place to start is where the business happens! Green commercial buildings not only save money, but they also help keep our environment clean. But what exactly does that mean and how does it all work? Is it all just some environment-friendly buzz-words or do these green buildings serve a meaningful purpose in our communities? Let’s go over a few facts on green commercial buildings and see what adds up.

Let’s start off with some energy statistics; on average green buildings consume 25% less energy. That’s a 25% deduction off your electric bill already! Alongside energy consumption, green buildings use 11% less water and 19% less in maintenance costs (Green Building Facts, USGBC). On top of saving on energy bills every month, it cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions by a whopping 34%. Saving money and saving the planet come hand in hand in the construction commercial green buildings.

So what exactly makes those changes in consumption so different? There are varying methods but most popular would be solar or wind power. This eliminates the use of fossil fuels, immediately exterminating any  emissions from entering the atmosphere. Solar panels have come a long way in the past few years, becoming more affordable and accessible thus allowing more business to take advantage of solar power. Wind power works mostly the same as solar power and obtains the same outcome.

The best part about building green buildings? It can have all the glitz and glamour of a non-green building without having to cut back on anything but energy usage, at no extra cost to the consumer!  Unlike most “organic” or green items, a green building doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg to construct. It also has the same amount of build time, if not less in some cases, as a non-green building. In fact, the only difference between a non-green and green building is that one will wind up costing consumers more in the long run, money-wise and earth-wise. A business that makes an earth-conscious decision makes a smart decision every time.

See What Customers Have to Say About Victory Lights

I have worked with Chad and his team for many years. His team always provide concise product information, allowing us to make informative decisions and our best options. The friendliness of the staff runs from the delivery person through the sales staff to Chad.  I have never felt pressure from the staff and they make you feel comfortable and confident with everything they provide.

William Y., Facilities Maintenance Manager, Kane Realty Corp. / Midtown Property Services

Victory Lights was instrumental in guiding us through the process of retrofitting the existing 20,000 sf Building with LED lighting to reduce our energy cost and maintenance cost.  This included working to ensure we received the best possible rebate available from Progress Energy.  Chad was extremely knowledgeable and patient through the entire process.

Wilson F., Treasurer, Holy Cross Lutheran Church

Victory Lights was the best choice we could have made for retro fitting with LED in the office building.  We received insightful consultation from their project leader, and are very appreciative of the high level of service they provided from start to finish.  The new lights that they helped us select are excellent quality, and look wonderful in the offices we lease.  We are excited about the beautiful, clean, and quiet light as well as the reduced energy/maintenance cost that we are experiencing.  It was a pleasure doing business with Victory Lights.

Lee N., Managing Partner, New Boy Properties

Chad has been very helpful with our LED retrofit project. He and his staff have not only been informative but have made all our projects hassle free.

Marc M., Chief Building Engineer, Healthcare Trust of America

The LED retro fit was a huge task, due to ceilings being 18' with a finished drywall ceiling.  Victory went to great efforts in finding the right lights resulting the least amount of remodel/tear out of old lights,while ensuring the accurate lighting needed for our jewelry showroom.  We are delighted to report that our year-to-date utility bill is down 23%.  Victory was wonderful to work with and the staff was amazing.  

Anfesa M., Anfesa's Jewelers

Since we have changed all our light bulbs in the common area of this 3 story, 169 apartment retirement community, we have not changed one single light bulb.

In the long haul, it saved us an enormous amount of money and time.

For business owners, saving money is one of the critical factors in maintaining a profit business. Saving starts from the inside out, making sure office and retail space is used efficiently, and money isn’t wasted on utilities. A business owner with a retail shop needs to have adequate lighting all day and sometimes even at night, but burning so much energy has got to be costly. Not when you make the switch to LEDs!
