Over the years, the term development has evolved to mean far more than just the addition of cookie-cutter compounds and skyscrapers. As the world becomes more attentive to the environmental impacts of construction, sustainability and efficiency initiatives emerge as priorities for the industry’s future. For business owner Jesse Ware, the future of sustainable building is called, Futuro Builders.
Ware used his experience from JPWare Design to form Futuro in 2011. Having grown up in the thick of the building trade – his father was one of the first to emphasize energy efficient homes back in the 1970s – Ware is more than attuned to the challenges and the potential posed by green building in the 21st century, having received LEED AP accreditation from the US Green Building Council (USGBC).
From commercial projects to residential homes, Futuro is a building firm that doesn’t promote environmental sustainability as the future, but rather as the standard. And Ware remains true to the green direction of his business.
“We approach our work the way we do for many reasons. The biggest reason, though, is we believe in it. It is at the core of our values,” said Ware. “Creating something that is healthier, more efficient, and has less impact on the Earth is always going to be the right thing to do.”
