Hamilton Builders, LLC is our general contracting company formed in 2012 with the goals of constructing newly developed apartment communities and restoring/preserving/and converting historical buildings in order to provide both senior and multi-family housing developments for our clientele. All of which, green building values is the standard.

Green Building, the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible, is a major part of our design and implementation of our projects. Our properties are built using energy efficient materials and appliances. Using these methods, we show not only our concern and respect for the environment, but our determination to create energy efficient and therefore a less expensive lifestyle for our residents.
Working with the guidelines and the educational resources of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), we are striving to move forward and become a strong force in the Green movement to protect both the environment and to strengthen our commitment to our residents to protect the environment and to provide a better a more economic home operation.
The National Green Building Standard rating system defines green building for single-family homes, low-, mid-, and high-rise multifamily buildings, residential remodeling projects, and site development projects. Certification to the NAHB standard is provided by the NAHB Research Center. To comply with the NAHB standard, a builder or remodeler must incorporate a minimum number of features in the following areas: lot and site development; energy, water, and resource efficiency; indoor environmental quality; and homeowner education.
Our goal is to continue this practice whenever possible in all of our future construction and revitalization projects in order to provide a much more environmentally friendly and efficient home for our residents.
