    AT WORK AT HOME

    Millions of workers are discovering the joys and productivity of staying at home. Tiresome commutes, environmental concerns, and electronic communications tools have encouraged them to reinvent how and where they work.

    BUILT TO LAST, SUSTAINABLY

    "Built Green Colorado" is a statewide program to encourage homebuilders to use sustainable technologies and practices. It promotes new construction that provides greater energy efficiency and healthier indoor air, preserves natural resources, improves durability, and reduces pollution, maintenance, and water use. Created by the Home Builders Association of Metro Denver and other groups, Built Green hosts an annual competition for energy conserving housing. Next week we'll look at two recent winners, including Tierra Concrete Homes whose patented construction method contributes to conservation.
