Verdant Building Innovations is a regional leader in Advanced Construction Technology and Advanced Building Systems. Our Team of licensed construction professionals has many years of experience building in high hazard and coastal areas of the Southeast. We work with Realtors, design professionals, developers, builders and their clients on the construction and design of the building's basic structure and infrastructure. Our expertise helps clients successfully complete residential and commercial projects that achieve high survivability and very low energy consumption, all while staying within budget. We also have the expertise to design and manage the installation of Advanced Building Systems that meet a wide variety of specialized requirements. 

Better technology means better outcomes. This ICF house is all that's left standing in a neighborhood in Gulfport, Mississippi after hurricane Katrina; this owner had options the others clearly did not. In inland Tennessee, a SIPS house was struck by a tornado that picked it up and dropped it 20 ft away, but with only minor damage. The sleeping owners were shaken, but unhurt. A client called us to say that their year old 3,800 SqFt SIPS house has never had an electric bill over $81. And, we can show that better technology is not any more expensive to build than the old way, sometimes less.
