Green Building: >>


Foothill Construction has long been committed to green building practices. Besides a commitment to adhering to the use of sustainable materials and practices, the company has been involved in several unique “green” projects.” Foothill Construction has been heavily involved in the design and construction of unique structures that are used to support solar panels.
Dubbed the “Sun Struc System,” Generation One of these structures are made of wood and are flexible enough to handle a wide variety of solar panels. Pictured here with a Sanyo “Bi Facial” solar panel, these structures add architectural interest to any yard in addition to providing power to the
home. “Sun Struc System,” Generation Two is currently under development and will look similar to the first generation in that it is much of the unique architectural appearance. However, the appearance is the only similarity.

This revision will be constructed of light weight aluminum and be fabricated in modular sections off site. While in the manufacturing facility, they are precision cut, welded and factory finished with a 50 year coating. They are also capable of handling both solar electric AND solar water heating modules. Foothill Construction has also been involved in the installation of unique low environmental impact roofs.

These “Green Roofs” can be installed on a home or even a garage or carport. In dense areas with little or no open space, these roofs can add a great deal of interest to any home. Foothill Construction was featured in the LA Times home Section.
