Green Homes

Allen Construction is recognized regionally and nationally as a leader in green building practices. Since the inception of our company, one of our core commitments has been to build homes that are healthy, comfortable, and energy-efficient. We use construction methods and help clients select products for their homes that will be sensitive to both them and the community’s unique resources. Based on our years of green building experience, we guide clients toward choices that are healthier, more energy-efficient, more durable, and more cost-effective over the long term. At Allen Construction, green building is a standard practice, along with meeting schedules, upholding quality standards, and maintaining budgets. Our vision is to build or remodel structures that generate energy rather than consume it, use less water, produce zero waste, and even purify the air. Allen Construction is, itself, a green business. We have remodeled our offices to include the same green features that our clients get on their building projects. Due to our green practices in purchasing, energy, transportation, water, and waste management, ours was one of the first two businesses certified through Santa Barbara County’s Green Business Program.
