"Green" Alternative Building Systems Promote Energy Efficiency and Sustainability
|"Alternative building systems" are generally wall systems that differ from "frame" wall systems (stud and insulation) that became the building standard in the United States during the last century. These "alternative" systems, if used correctly, are generally more energy efficient and sustainable than frame construction. They include numerous tried-and-true "green" methods, including Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs), Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC), Rammed Earth, Straw-Clay, Straw Bale, and Adobe, the traditional New Mexico building method now considered "alternative".|
