Build Smart

As you explore options that involve “green” practices or state-of-the-art products, Riemco will always help you evaluate things in light of your personal circumstances.

Building smart involves understanding – not just in theory but first-hand -- the tradeoffs in every choice of materials, technologies, and construction techniques.

An Early Analytical Approach

Riemco began 20 years ago to develop a “build smart” philosophy incorporating practices recognized today as green and sustainable. Our initial aim was simply to think critically about then-standard industry practices as we learned the business.  Unhampered by pre-conceived ideas, we researched advanced building science technologies to find better ways of reducing resource use and increasing efficiencies.  It turns out that conservation of time, money, materials, and human energy often leads to conservation of natural resources as well. Yet there is no simple formula;  no single shade of green, degree of sustainability, or cost-saving prescription that fits every project.

Choice Guided by Experience

Riemco enables you to make fully informed choices.  You’ll be able to draw on our decades of experience:  with the climate and topography of southeastern Michigan, with construction industry trends, and with careful listening.   As you explore options that involve “green ” practices or state-of-the-art products, we’ll always help you evaluate things in light of your personal circumstances.  Our culture of customer care extends to thinking about how you will manage and maintain the property after it is finished.  You can see a detailed description of how we work in our step-by-step summary.
